Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Action Plan
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Action Plan 2010-2014 was developed by the Ministerial Council for Education, Early Childhood Development and Youth Affairs. This document is regarded as an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) and is mandatory for every Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander student enrolled in a DECD school. The ATSI Plan is aimed to accelerate improvements in the outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people. This document provides a plan for future learning development and also summarise the essential and critical issues that are discussed and then recorded.
The document is reviewed by the AET (Aboriginal Education Teacher) each semester and can also include input of the student, class teachers and family. Developing and reviewing the ILP provides an opportunity for key personnel to contribute to a shared discussion about the learning and general well-being of each ATSI student.
The plan includes:
• Attendance data for each term
• Health and Wellbeing
• Current data on Literacy and Maths achievement
• Strengths and Interests
• Areas for Growth and Development
This document will follow the student across their schooling life, and especially at key transition points
