The department’s overarching purpose is maximising opportunity and prosperity through national leadership on education, skills and employment.
On this page:
We operate on the principle that Indigenous business is everyone’s business, to ensure that opportunity and prosperity for Indigenous peoples is at the heart of our work.
We develop and deliver education and training policies and programs by working with Indigenous peoples, respecting cultures and building our cultural capability. We recognise the unique skills, experience and contributions of our Indigenous employees and we support them to reach their potential. Each of us works to strengthen our understanding and appreciation of Indigenous peoples’ cultures, history and diversity.
Our RAP provides the framework to commit to practical actions that build respectful relationships and create opportunities with Indigenous peoples–inside and outside the organisation.
