The Queensland Government has a vision for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders to have their cultures affirmed, heritage sustained and the same prospects for health, prosperity and quality of life as other Queenslanders. The Government is committed to achieving this vision by ensuring all levels of government, community, business and non-government sectors work together to meet community needs.

The QCAA strongly supports the Government's vision, as part of our commitment to an equitable education system, articulated in:
Indigenous languages policy
This statement acknowledges the importance of understanding, maintaining and promoting the diversity of Australian Indigenous languages spoken in Queensland and across Australia.
