The Department of Education, Training and Employment's Division of Indigenous Education and Training Futures (DIETF) is responsible for developing and implementing policy, programs and services to support Indigenous education and training. DIETF seeks to ensure that all processes in the continuum from birth to mature adult are geared to the success of Indigenous peoples through strong advocacy, evidence-based policy advice, service and programs, and enduring partnerships with community and key stakeholders. Indigenous VET Initiatives (IVI), a unit of the Division, develops and implements strategies and programs to improve skilling and employment opportunities for Indigenous Queenslanders. IVI consults with stakeholders, undertakes research and monitors data to inform Indigenous VET policy and planning.
There are a number of agencies that provide programs and services for VET and some of these are specifically for Indigenous people. If you are a student, potential student, family or community member, organisation or someone else interested in Indigenous VET you can find the information or be directed to relevant web pages from here:

Steven had previously worked as a sport and recreation officer and a carpenter, but decided he wanted to do more with his life. He took on a traineeship as an Indigenous Police Liaison Officer in 2007, and completed his Certificate III in October last year. The married father of four daughters wants to be a positive Indigenous role model in Cunnamulla, and involves himself in many community activities. He hopes to become a senior police liaison officer and eventually a civilian watch house officer to assist Indigenous people and others in custody.
