In Australia, regional and remote Indigenous students are underrepresented in both higher education and vocational education and training. Access (or enabling) education courses are important in lifting participation rates and potentially in encouraging mobility between the sectors, yet there is a clear lack of evidence underpinning their development, composition and delivery. This presentation will offer a snapshot of the data specifically in regards to curriculum. Moreover, it will show how students, staff and stakeholders have ideas and concepts about what and how Indigenous knowledges should be developed and delivered within the curriculum. We will demonstrate through the presentation how we can strengthen access education by the inclusion of Indigenous content and Indigenous pedagogies for Indigenous students. Indigenisation of the curriculum is a critically important factor for many Indigenous peoples in Access Education.
