CLC’s Submission to the Australian Government Review of Indigenous Training and Employment Programs

Central Land Council’s Submission to the Australian Government Review of Indigenous Training and Employment Programs

The CLC has supported successful indigenous employment and training programs over the last decade – particularly through the CLC Ranger Program and the Employment and Training Unit’s involvement in placement of Aboriginal people into jobs within the mining and pastoral sectors within the central Australian region.

The following submission draws on the experience gained through these programs and it addresses some of the key needs and critical factors for successful indigenous training and employment programs in remote areas.  

The CLC is also a member of the Aboriginal Peak Organisations NT (APO NT).  This submission should be read in conjunction with the APO NT submission which provides an overview of the challenges and barriers to remote employment, highlights the importance of local Aboriginal organisations and strong Aboriginal governance, and details the alternative remote employment model proposed by APO NT.  In the interests of brevity these issues are not covered in detail in this submission.
