Northern Territory – Level of Education

The ratio of Indigenous to non Indigenous students varied with the level of schooling. Generally as the school level increased, Indigenous student participation decreased.

In 2006 there was a significantly higher proportion of females (63.1%) enrolled in higher education in the Northern Territory than males (36.9%). In contrast, VocationalEducation and Training (VET) enrolments showed a higher proportion of male enrolments (54.8%) than female enrolments (45.2%). Only 8.8% of student representation in higher education were Indigenous.
