Education is a lifelong process. All Koorie people participate in the education of our families and communities. The Victorian Aboriginal Education Association Incorporated is the peak Koorie community organisation for education and training in Victoria. We work for our community to build success in education and training.
At every stage of life, we all deserve an education that honours our potential and respects our culture. VAEAI’s main functions are providing advice on Koorie education issues, monitoring education trends and advocating for the needs of our community.
The structure of VAEAI and the role of their Local Aboriginal Education Consultative Groups allow for a process of continuous and systematic consultation with Koorie communities across Victoria. VAEAI’s strength lies in this structure and is the means by which the organisation can legitimately provide an advocate function for the Koorie community.
