Connecting Indigenous job seekers with guaranteed jobs

07-Apr-2015

Connecting Indigenous job seekers with guaranteed jobs and bringing together the support services necessary to prepare them for long term employment is what Vocational Training & Employment Centres (VTECs) do.

With funding from the Australian Government and based on the GenerationOne employment model, VTECs operate with the support and involvement of local Indigenous communities and their leaders and are aligned to the values and needs of both Indigenous communities and employers.

One of the West Kimberley’s first VTEC participants, Wynston Shovellor-Sesar, is employed as a Karajarri Ranger as part of the Karajarri Healthy Country Program through the Kimberley Land Council (KLC). Twenty-six weeks into the program, Wynston is well on his way to completing a Certificate II in Conservation and Land Management.

A highlight for Wynston was joining KLC on a learning exchange program to Canada where they discussed conservation and land management issues with the First Nations People. He said the exchange was a great experience seeing some of the things the First Nations People did in British Columbia.

Wynston plans to complete his Certificate II in Conservation and Land Management with the KLC, taking him beyond the VTEC program and leading him into long-term employment.

KGT is the VTEC for the Kimberley region and has a number of program places still available across the east and west Kimberley.
