Wannik - A Strategy For Improvement


The Wannik Education Strategy promises significant changes at all levels of the education system. These changes are a necessary response to the disparity in educational outcomes between Koorie and non Koorie students.

The strategy proposes to:

•  reform the government school system’s education of Koorie students

•  support greater student engagement

•  provide more literacy and numeracy support

•  provide support and encouragement for high-achieving students

•  expand and develop the Koorie support workforce

•  renew our focus on parental engagement

•  share responsibility appropriately across government 


In the Barwon South Western Region the role of the Koorie Education Co-ordinator (KEC) position is to support the provision of greater management responsibility from the region to ensure that the support services are directed to the areas of greatest need in respect to Koorie education. 


At school level, the Koorie Engagement Support Officer (KESO) is responsible for delivering support and services to Koorie children and their families through their region and replaces the past Koorie Educators, Koorie Education Development Officers, Koorie Early Childhood Field Officers, and Home School Liaison Officer positions.
