Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education

The Queensland Catholic Education Commission (QCEC) and Catholic schooling authorities in Queensland are committed to closing the gap in education outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students.

The QCEC Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Network provides strategic advice to QCEC for the inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Catholic perspectives in the development of state and national education legislation and policies.

The Commission has endorsed an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Position Statement to support Catholic School Authorities as they form collaborative partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, parents, community and organisations to enable students to have equitable access to quality Catholic education that is mutually enriching for all.
