We measure our success through our data, which consistently shows outstanding outcomes for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and young women taking part.
WHAT ARE THE KEY MEASURES?
In 2019, 91 per cent of our senior Stars completed Year 12. This is an outstanding outcome, given that the national rate of Year 12 completion for Indigenous Australians was as low as 65.3 per cent in 2016 (Closing the Gap Report 2018).
INTO EMPLOYMENT OR
As of December 2019, 87 per cent of our 2018 Stars Graduates had transitioned successfully and remained in full-time employment, training or tertiary education. We are continuing to support the remaining young women in their search for work or study opportunities.
In 2019, Stars students attended school at a significantly higher rate than Indigenous students not taking part in the program.
Across our partner schools, our young women achieved an average attendance rate of 84 per cent, as compared to an average Indigenous attendance rate of just 73 per cent in the same schools.
In many of our partner schools, the average attendance rate of Stars students is higher than ‘whole school’ average attendance.
