Aboriginal Educators


I have a student looking to find out the number of aboriginal education graduates who were able to get teaching positions in the last 5 years. Is there data on this? If so, where can I find it?


This type of information is actually not possible with the way the information is collected here. We can’t identify the link between Aboriginal graduates and if they are able to secure a teaching position later on.

We would be able to tell the highest level of education of an Aboriginal person, their occupation etc. at the time the survey is collected (most recent one being APS 2012) but not the correlation the researcher is looking for. (In the last 5 years)

If they can be more specific we may be able to do a custom tabulation (at a cost and delay of time).
