The annual 'National Report to Parliament on Indigenous Education and Training' is produced for the Minister for Education, Science and Training. It was first published in 2001. The report tracks outcomes for Indigenous education during a calendar year, and also tracks cumulative outcomes for the current funding quadrennium of the Indigenous Education Strategic Initiatives Programme (IESIP). The publication reports progress towards equality in outcomes for Indigenous Australians when compared with non-Indigenous Australians.

The Report provides a policy context for indigenous education. Within each of the preschool, school, VET and higher education sectors, data are presented for key areas including educational outcomes and enrolments, consistent with reporting against IESIP targets. The Report also provides a summary of activity in other national programmes and projects. Details of payments made under the Indigenous Education (Targeted Assistance) Act, 2000 and other payments are also described. The Report is available via the 'Indigenous education\publications' link on the DEST website.
