67DEET Annual Report 2005-06Government Education > Government Education Future priorities Improvements in Indigenous educational outcomes over the next four years will be accelerated through the Indigenous Strategic Plan 2006-2009. DEET will focus on: - High quality teaching and learning - Stakeholder agreements and partnerships - Access to education - Health and wellbeing of learners - Access to jobs and career pathways - Leadership and workforce development. At the start of 2007, Year 10 students will join Years 11 and 12 to form the senior years of schooling. Middle years schooling will commence for all Year 8 and 9 students in 2007, before all Year 7 students across the Territory join Years 8 and 9 as part of the middle years of schooling in 2008. A Teaching and Learning Framework will be developed to support teachers by defining the essential features of good teaching and learning practice for the Northern Territory Curriculum Framework and South Australian Curriculum Statements. Secondary teachers will receive support to monitor student learning and provide pathways mentorship for students in the senior years, and in their transition from school to employment, further training or higher education. Career advisers in remote communities will receive intensive support to help them develop transition plans for Indigenous students. A Chief Executives Student Forum and a Leadership Program will be established to extend opportunities available for students to promote personal growth. Community involvement in education will be strengthened through a program being developed by the Council of Government Schools Organisations (COGSO).
