Excerpt from coverWhat Works. The Work Program. Stepping up: What works in pre-service teacher education

The What Works materials give teacher educators and teachers access to a vast number of people who are engaged in improving outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people. The materials present important examples of strategies that have led to success for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and are based on real people in real places. Above all, the What Works materials can be adapted successfully for use in a variety of locations and situations.

3Rs focus group findings

As part of the 3Rs project, a series of focus groups were conducted in April 2013. These focus groups captured the perceptions of initial teacher education students during or immediately after their study. All participants were non-Indigenous (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices are captured elsewhere in the project.)
