Education, training and workshops
Integrated skills development that benefits both employers and aspiring employees
We also know that training works best when it brings together the needs and aspirations of both job seekers and employers.
How our integrated approach to training can work for you
Job-specific training is what our Vocational Training and Education Centres (VTECs) are all about.
A focus on skills development also underpins our services in remote regions through the Community Development Program, as well as in meeting the specialised training needs of the people we work with through our Disability Employment Services.
As part of the Angus Knight Group, which includes the industry-leading Angus Knight Institute, integrated training is in our DNA.
And because our support doesn’t stop once we place someone in a job, we can also help you with workforce education and training more broadly, whether that’s through diversity workshops, mentoring or cultural competence training.
The power of job-specific training through our VTECs
VTECs are part of the Australian Government’s strategy to end inequality for First Nations Australians through support-based training and employment. Based on the successful Generation One ‘employment first’ training model, VTECs are the place where people who want to work meet employers who want to hire them.
We place job-ready people with employers, ensure they get the right training, and support both parties for as long as needed.
A respected national network

Find out more about Generation One and the Australian Government’s First Nations employment strategies
Generation One is an initiative of the Minderoo Foundation, promoting a demand-led approach to achieving First Nations job parity. It involves securing employment for candidates prior to training, coordinating job-ready development programs to help candidates, and linking service provider payments to long-term outcomes.
The Australian Government
The Australian Government understands that employment is critical to the health and prosperity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. For all Australians, employment offers social and economic benefits that flow to individuals, families, communities and the economy as a whole.
