Engagement programs for secondary Indigenous students

Indigenous students may be able to join programs at school to help improve their attendance, health and wellbeing and school results.

The program will assist students to obtain a Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training (NTCET) and support their employment options beyond school.

If your child is an Indigenous student enrolled at a school where a program is run they can participate. There are programs for boys and for girls.
