What are we doing?

How can we support the Aboriginal community-controlled education sector to lead on delivery of education initiatives?

Place of Learning program – Supporting the Aboriginal community-controlled education sector

Place of Learning' program’- The NSW AECG’s Place of Learning program provides alternative Aboriginal community led education opportunities. The first Place of Learning program, the Ngurang-gu Yalbilinya (NgY) program, was established at Lake Canobolas near Orange in 2021. The NgY program is governed by the Local Coalition of Aboriginal Peak Organisations and is continuing to achieve remarkable attendance, cultural education and literacy and numeracy outcomes for the Aboriginal boys and young men who attend the program. The NSW AECG is working towards sustaining and expanding the Place of Learning program. <br><br>‘Supporting the Aboriginal community-controlled education sector’ - The NSW AECG will employ a network and early childhood education officer to support and strengthen the NSW AECG’s existing Network of Local AECGs and to contribute to building capacity for Aboriginal education in the Early Childhood Education sector.
