ABOUT AIME WHAT IS AIME?

HOW DOES THE AIME PROGRAM WORK?

At each site, AIME operates a Core and Outreach Program. The Core Program targets local Indigenous high school students located within 30 minutes of a partner university campus. The Outreach Program extends the AIME experience to Indigenous high school students within 2-3 hours of a partner university campus.

AIME provides a dynamic educational Program that gives Indigenous high school students the skills, opportunities, belief and confidence to finish school at the same rate as all Australian students. AIME has proven to significantly improve the chances of Indigenous kids finishing school. AIME also connects students with post Year 12 opportunities, including further education and employment.

Year 9/10 Programs: The Year 9 Interactive Program covers topics such as Art, Drama, Respect, Aboriginality and Pathways to Success. The Year 10 Leadership Program includes sessions on Racism, Year 11 and 12 Subject Selection, Résumé Building and Writing your First Speech as Prime Minister. These are delivered through 15 x 1 hour workshops in the Core Program, and 3 full-day sessions in the Outreach Program from May to November.

Year 11/12 Leadership and Development Program: Three high-impact, full-day sessions delivered at the local university campus over terms two and three, in both the Core and Outreach Programs. The focus is Year 12 completion and future pathways to university, further education or employment.

AIME Tutor Squads: Squads of university students who travel to schools during the 15-week Program period. Each site may host up to 5 squads of 5 university students, giving up to 25 Indigenous students per week access to one-on-one academic support. (Core Program only).

AIME Learning Centres (ALCs): An after-school AIME Learning Centre set up at each site to provide further academic and personal support for the students after school. (Core Program only).

AIME believes that Indigenous = success.

AIME’S GOALS FOR 2016 •

AIME students will complete high school at the same rate as all Australian students.

Of the AIME students who complete Year 12, 100% will transition to university, TAFE or further employment.

AIME will annually connect 1,700 university student Mentors with 2,800 Indigenous high school students in 20 university sites and surrounding communities across Australia.

IMPACT OF AIME TO DATE •

AIME started in 2005 with 25 Mentors and 25 Mentees. In 2012, AIME is connecting approximately 1,000 Mentees and 1,000 Mentors across 10 university sites in three states.

Since 2010 AIME has tracked its students’ progression and published the results in our Annual Report. AIME students are finishing school at almost the same rate as every Australian child.
