Employment and training
The Alinytjara Wilurara Landscape Board is committed to increasing Aboriginal employment, training and engagement outcomes within our programs.
To better engage Aboriginal community members in work on Country in the AW region, the Board:
- contributes to the economic development of the communities we work in and, whenever possible, uses local resources
- provides skills development through training and mentoring, where/if capacity is limited
- supports land management work by overseeing contract-based employment.
The Board is currently reviewing the Employment, Training and Procurement Strategy that directly links pathways toward employment for Aboriginal people.
The AW team has delivered numerous training activities for people across the AW region:
- workplace health and safety
- survey techniques
- pitfall trap training
- safe handling of chemicals
- water testing
- central Australian wetland survey procedure
- digital story telling
- cyber tracker
- support community members and Aboriginal staff to attend appropriate conferences, workshops and other training opportunities
- provide opportunities for young Aboriginal people through Aboriginal Traineeship Program
- host visitor groups
- host work experience students.
