Empowering choices for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, teachers, parents, and their communities

This project — Pathways Into Teacher Education: Empowering Choices for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students, Teachers, Parents, and Their Communities — has been developed to promote teaching as a career of choice to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people at local levels, through the establishment of local-level partnerships between schools and industries.

One of the primary concerns that Pathways will address is the lack of clarification around pathways into teacher education due to a number of community social impacts that restrict parental engagement, and a general confusion about support for career and study prospects. Pathways is an opportunity to reach a number of students, teachers, parents, and communities in urban, rural, and remote contexts through a culturally appropriately designed and informative ICT resource.
