Aboriginal Education

The AIEO program

The AIEO program was established to support Aboriginal students and assist schools in implementing culturally inclusive education programs.

AIEOs are allocated using a formula which takes into account the number of Aboriginal students, the year level of the Aboriginal students and the socio-economic index of the school.

The AIEO role includes:

  • supporting Aboriginal students in the areas of academic achievement, participation, attendance, discipline, retention and communication;
  • liaising with the community to engage parents in their children's education and addressing issues that arise;
  • ensuring that the culture of the community extends into the teaching and learning program, leading to inclusive practices within the school; and
  • providing classroom support to assist the teacher in the delivery of planned education programs.

The AIEO job description form is available from the Workforce Division Intranet. [Sign In]
