Publication abstract:

The Australian Government has supported Indigenous Cadetships since 1999. The Indigenous Cadetship Support (ICS) program was designed to support Indigenous tertiary students to complete their undergraduate degrees and progress onto ongoing employment. The progression of Indigenous undergraduates to professional employment aims to both ‘close the gap’ between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians and contribute to Australia’s national wellbeing and economic prosperity more broadly.

NIAA engaged Inside Policy to conduct an evaluation of the former ICS and current TAEG Cadetships programs in November 2019. The purpose of the evaluation is to provide evidence-based advice on the effectiveness of the program in meeting its objectives and to highlight possible future program improvements.

This report details the findings of the evaluation, including:

  • the experience of cadets, providers, universities and employers; and
  • implications for future program design and implementation.
