Enter for Success program
The Enter for Success program aims to support the inclusion, attendance, participation and retention of Aboriginal students at secondary school.
This program gives Aboriginal students the opportunity to enrol and be accepted into any government secondary school they nominate the year before starting secondary school.
Who can apply
Year 7 students who identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander can apply.
Choosing a secondary school
There’s already a place available at your local government secondary school. If you don’t want to attend your local government secondary school, you can select another secondary school.
Students should consider a secondary school that:
- meets their educational needs
- provides the best opportunity for a healthy social life
- provides encouraging environments for educational success
- supports regular attendance.
Support in the chosen secondary school
Once a secondary school is chosen, the school will work with you to make sure they give your child the necessary support and opportunities to achieve educational outcomes through their secondary schooling.
The success of the program depends on quality consultation and clear communication between:
- your child’s primary school
- your child’s intended secondary school
- student support services
- Aboriginal education staff
- students and their families.
How to apply
Year 7 families should apply through the department’s statewide registration of interest process for students starting secondary school (before the end of term 2). However you have until the last day of term 4 to apply. Refer to starting school for more information.
If you’re interested in the program, you and your child should meet with your primary school to discuss enrolment options, expectations, responsibilities and commitments of everyone involved.
