The Journey ‘To Big School’ report is based on consultations with twelve services across Australia who are delivering high-quality transition programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. The diverse programs shared key strengths that demonstrate good practice principles and practices for transition programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. The two key strengths identified in the Report are:
- a holistic approach that places the child at the centre of the focus; and
- competent, supported and committed program staff.
The Report provides key recommendations for future policy and practice in this area.
