The Indigenous Professional Support Unit (IPSU) NSW and ACT, is a program managed by Gowrie NSW and funded by the Australian Government through the Inclusion and Professional Support Program (IPSP).
IPSUs provide professional development and support to eligible Indigenous education and care services. IPSUs also work with the Professional Support Co-ordinators and Inclusion Support Agencies to respond to current and emerging needs.
IPSUs perform the same role as Professional Support Co-ordinators except they work with eligible Indigenous-run education and care services.
The IPSU supports the Professional Support Co-ordinators and ISAs to provide culturally appropriate advice and support to education and care services who employ Indigenous staff and/or care for Indigenous children.
