School Education

Details of these Commonwealth programmes are available on the Department's website as part of the Commonwealth Programmes for Schools - Quadrennial Administrative Guidelines 2001-04.

Indigenous Education

(a) Funding under IESIP provides supplementary assistance through recurrent and project funding to education providers and other bodies to achieve improved outcomes for Indigenous students. Supplementary IESIP funding applies across the preschool, school and vocational education and training sectors.

The IEDA programme has three elements and does not directly provide funding to education providers. The elements of the programme are:

1. The Aboriginal Student Support and Parent Awareness (ASSPA) programme funds parent committees in preschools and schools to undertake activities to improve education outcomes for Indigenous students and to increase the participation of the parents of Indigenous students in their children's education;

2. The Aboriginal Tutorial Assistance Scheme (ATAS) provides supplementary tuition and other study assistance to Indigenous students in primary and secondary schools, TAFE, University and formal training programmes; and

3. The Vocational and Educational Guidance for Aboriginals Scheme (VEGAS) funds projects on career information and study options, and projects which foster positive attitudes about participation in education for Indigenous school students.

The Indigenous Support Funding programme provides grants to higher education institutions to assist in meeting the special needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and to advance the goals of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Policy. Each institution is required to develop an Indigenous education strategy, which forms part of the institution's educational profile on which Commonwealth funding is based.

(b) DEST National Office, in conjunction with the New South Wales DEST State Office and New South Wales DEST District Offices allocate funds under IESIP in line with the Administrative Guidelines. Funding under IEDA is allocated in line with the IEDA Policy and Procedures Manual by the New South Wales DEST State Office and the New South Wales DEST District Offices.

International Education

(a) The Australian UMAP Programme provides flat rate subsidies to Australian higher education institutions to subsidise the cost of their negotiating and monitoring, and of Australian students' participation in, UMAP student exchanges. The student exchanges are required to involve the reciprocal waiving of tuition fees and students who successfully complete a minimum of one semester, a maximum of two semesters of study at the overseas counterpart institution on the exchange are granted credit towards the degree for which they remain enrolled at their home university.

The Programme aims to

· promote credit transfer arrangements between higher education institutions in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region with a view to supporting mutual recognition of educational qualifications;

· increase cooperation between higher education institutions in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region including in the development of higher education programmes; and

· increase the number of Australian graduates with cultural, language and professional experience relevant to the region.

(b) Submissions from Australian higher education institutions are comparatively assessed by a Selection Committee comprised of representatives of the Department of Education, Science and Training (DEST) and the Australian Vice-Chancellors' Committee (AVCC).

Science

(a) The Major National Research Facilities Programme funds eligible capital and/or operating costs of facilities in the natural sciences and engineering fields. The Programme's objectives are (1) to improve Australia's capability in science, engineering and technology; (2) maintain and enhance Australia's international scientific and industrial competitiveness; and (3) support the rapid commercialisation of results.

(b)The Major National Research Facilities Committee provided recommendations to the then Minister on the proposals that should be funded. In 2001, the Minister for Industry, Science and Resources, Senator the Hon Nick Minchin, made the final decision on the proposals to be funded.
