Join our Mob: Developing the Career Potential of Aboriginal Students
Indigenous people are under-represented in many professions including education. This #OurMobTeach conference workshop engaged delegates with proven strategies and resources to develop the career potential of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.
NSW Department of Education has achieved much success in recruiting and supporting Aboriginal people into the Department through a mix of strategies including connection with communities, study incentives, policy levers and early career support.
The workshop will present findings and engage delegates to consider how these strategies, digital media and resources may be adapted by any service agency.
