Abstract

This project will undertake and develop audience appropriate high quality data, analysis, recommendations and a 'maximising transition'; model which can be used by communities, education providers and governments at all levels upon which to base future policy, procedures and practices to enhance the transition of under-represented Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people into higher education.

The key deliverables are:

  • the staged presentation of a series of State of the Education Nation reports aligned with each level of analysis and
  • a final report detailing recommendations targeting identified needs and opportunities at each level of analysis.
