The case studies presented in this Support Document are a compilation of learnings derived from the research project, "Enhancing training advantage for remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander learners." The project, funded by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER), was conducted by a consortium of researchers from five institutions: TAFE SA, Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education, University of New England, James Cook University and the University of Notre Dame Australia. The research was conducted during 2016 with participants from five locations: the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands of South Australia, the Northern Territory, western New South Wales, the Kimberley region of Western Australia, and the Cape York and Torres Strait Island regions of Queensland. Based on training programs considered to be successful, the project was designed in order to gain an understanding of the dynamics of retention and completion towards employability. Nationally, for very remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander trainees, completion rates for VET courses are on average 16.6%, with an even lower figure for certificate I courses.
