Prime Minister Rudd has made a promise to halve the education and work opportunity gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in ten years. The Dusseldorp Skills Forum, in partnership with Reconciliation Australia, has developed two reports as a contribution to this goal. These reports highlight where the gaps are but also those programs that are already working to narrow them. Closing these gaps does not require reinventing the wheel, but rather knowing what works and supporting these programs.

Keeping Up draws on the insights of How Young Indigenous People are Faring, mapping the patterns of what is happening for young Indigenous people and identifies what improvements can be made. Some good practice examples are showcased in the report.
