Learning outcomes for Indigenous school children are enhanced if they are taught by Indigenous teachers, but less than 1 per cent of all Australian teachers are Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander.

The InspireU Education camp is delivered in partnership with the UQ School of Education to encourage up to 20 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from schools across Queensland to consider and pursue study and a career in education. It also exposes students to the wider range of career and study options available to education students and graduates.

Throughout the camp, students participate in a number of activities that are both interactive and informative, including sessions on the difference teachers make in the lives of their students, the science of learning, maths, inclusive education, languages, as well as field trips to the Queensland Museum, Queensland Art Museum, Kuril Dhagun and a Drumming Circle.
