We measure our success through data, which consistently shows outstanding outcomes for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and young women taking part in our programs.
WHAT ARE THE KEY MEASURES?
Completion of Year 12
Year 12 completion rate of 97 per cent in 2020. 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).
Transitions to Work or Study
87 per cent Successful Transitions to Work or Study. As of December 2021, 87 per cent of our 2020 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.
Attendance Rate of 79 per cent in 2020. In 2020, 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 12 per cent higher than Indigenous students not taking part in the program. In many of our partner schools, the average attendance rate of Stars students is higher than ‘whole school’ average attendance.
