Abstract

This project examined the role of Indigenous education paraprofessionals in facilitating post-school education options and access for Indigenous young people, and sought insight into barriers to, and enablers of, post-school education for this cohort. Literature review, yarning circles and interviews informed a set of culturally appropriate principles, applicable to policy and practice strategies, to increase Indigenous student access to, and participation in, higher education
