SAASTA achievements

Success can be measured in many ways. The increase in the number of students engaging in SAASTA plus the increase in students completing SACE show the success of the SAASTA program.

In a recent survey the majority of students responded that they gained personally and academically through their involvement in the SAASTA program. They gained confidence through studying in classes with other Aboriginal students.

The qualifications they gained, especially by completing the Certificate III VET offerings, ensures the completion of their SACE and assisted in their transition to meaningful employment or tertiary study.

SAASTA year 12 students make up more than 33% of all Aboriginal SACE completers in South Australia in recent years.
