The SAASTA Program caters for Aboriginal students, giving them a specific pathway to achieve their SACE certificate via gaining a significant number of their SACE points through guided learning and the medium of sport.

Other aims and outcomes of the program includes retention and engagement at school of students involved, maintaining application to their studies, and also giving these students the opportunity to develop a number of workplace practices and leadership skills through the subjects and activities included within the program.

Besides their SACE certificates, students involved may also have the opportunity to complete a Certificate III in Sport and Recreation from the program.

Once students are identified they must meet certain Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) aimed at students achieving a high standard regarding their application to school and their studies, including goals for attendance to lessons.
