Creating sustainable Indigenous employment in remote areas

09-Sep-2015

Vocational Training and Employment Centres (VTECs) have successfully placed over 2,500 Indigenous people into work, around one fifth of those through the efforts of group training organisations.

29 VTECs are located across the country. VTECs are fully funded by the Australian Government and are based upon the GenerationOne employment model. The rates of retention are exceeding expectation which is a credit to the VTEC’s and their internal programs which build the capacity of the individual to be both job ready and life ready.

As the Vocational Training and Employment Centre (VTEC) provider for the Kimberley region, Kimberley Group Training (KGT) has been working hard to capitalise on regional investment and growth opportunities for Indigenous peoples. Despite challenges such as vastness and remoteness, VTEC has not only developed key partnerships with local stakeholders, but also placed over 100 participants in employment. This sees KGT on track to reach the milestone of 180 guaranteed jobs for Indigenous Australians before December 2015.

Operating in a remote area, KGT’s main goal is to create the right conditions for sustainable development and deliver services that meet the primary needs of all Indigenous people in the region. As part of its post placement support service, KGT representatives recently visited ten VTEC participants at their workplaces. Having started their pre-employment phase in February 2015, these participants had the opportunity to get work-ready in Construction and Plant Operations.

All successfully completed their pre-employment courses and secured full-time employment with Kimberley Agricultural Investments (KAI). KGT continues to build on its successful record to ensure that the potential of the Kimberley region is fulfilled.
