Elly Cleggett, a current Arts student studying a double degree of International Development and Environmental Policy and Management was accepted in to the Aurora Internship Program. She relocated from Adelaide to Sydney New South Wales (NSW) to join the Aboriginal Children, Family and Communities Care State Secretariat (AbSec), a not for profit Aboriginal organisation.

AbSec provide child protection and out-of-home-care policy advice on issues affecting Aboriginal children, young people, families and careers. Elly chose this internship to learn practical skills in policy writing and broaden her knowledge on Aboriginal affairs.

“I worked on many projects while at AbSec, the biggest project being an education report and policy brief, which involved significant editing and research. The aim of the education report was to highlight the various barriers surrounding Aboriginal children in out-of-home care in schools and suggestions for overcoming these issues and supporting these children to achieve their best.” (more…)
