Indigenous Education Victoria
The Victorian Aboriginal Education Association (VAEAI) was first established in 1976
Today VAEAI represents the Koorie Community in relation to education policy development and strategic programming at the local, state and national levels. We support the provision of education and training that reinforces our community’s cultural identity and increases awareness in the wider community of Koorie culture and aspirations in education and training.
VAEAI is a state-wide Koorie Community organisation consisting of eight regions. These regions are divided on the basis of traditional networks with a number of Local Aboriginal Education Consultative Groups (LAECGs) within each region. Our local advisory arrangements are solidly embedded in local Communities through LAECGs, which are constituent units of VAEAI and have representation on the VAEAI Committee of Management. Membership to the LAECG is open to all members of the Koorie Community in their respective localities.
Local Aboriginal Education Consultative Groups (LAECGs) are voluntary bodies made up of a broad range of local Koorie community members. The members of LAECGs dedicate their time to improving the education opportunities of Koorie people in their local community
