This column is dedicated to those who have gone before us, to those presentand to those who will follow us.
The new government program Work for the Dolehas arrived.
Love it or hate it, its here.
Part of my role as NSW NCAP (New Careers Aboriginal People) person is to assist Aboriginal mobs through this program role-out.
The next lot of information is part of the government guidelines for job seekers about what is involved with the Work for the Dole programme.
“Under Work for the Dole you can gain skills and experience that give back to the community and can help you find a job,” it says.
“If you have been registered with a job active provider and on income support for six months or more, you will need to take part in Work for Dole or another approved activity for six months each year.”
So, that is the federal government yarn up about it.
What I’m in the process of doing is putting together meaningful programs that will help our community, but will also be engaging to our mobs.
If you have to do the Work for the Dole program, you might as well learn useful skills at the same time.
I will also try to ensure that extra training is given that will give you valuable skills and tickets so as to give you better assistance that just may help you to get employed.
I will have programs running in Griffith and Wagga areas very soon.
They will involve Aboriginal cultural activities as well as gaining valuable skills to work on country.
The program will also incorporate other skills such as building repairs, fencing, landscaping, car and small engine maintenance and more.
These programs will also involve working on country with Elders andAboriginal community leaders.
I will be on hand as well to help our people learn more about ourWiradjuri culture and heritage.
Although this is a “Work for the Dole” program I will work hard to make it an engaging and culturally fulfilling part of your life that may lead you into employment
All you need to do is contact your Job Active office, advise them that I have programs coming up very shortly, get them to contact me and away we go.
I can be contacted on my email address at [email protected]南京夜网419论坛.
You need to come on board with NSW State Training NCAP program by signing a simple form which then allows you to get access to me and my program and assistance.
All of this is at no charge to Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander mobs.
