The department is committed to strengthening relationships with Aboriginal communities and organisations.
Together We Are; Together We Can; Together We Will – Our partnership agreement with the NSW Aboriginal Education Consultative Group (AECG) is a statement of intent of how the NSW AECG and the department work together. The strength of the NSW AECG is its community base through its network of over 140 local and regional AECGs. This allows Aboriginal people to have a voice in self-determining their educational future which will impact on the future prosperity of Aboriginal communities.
Our partnership with the NSW AECG allows policies and programs to be developed that meet the needs of Aboriginal people and their communities. The working together of Aboriginal communities and the department is strengthened under this Partnership Agreement to achieve common goals set in consultation and negotiation with Aboriginal communities.
