Attendance subsidy now available - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Pathways Workshop
NDIS registered providers in WA can now apply for an attendance subsidy for their employees to attend the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Pathways Workshop.
Funded by the WA Department of Communities, attendance subsidies are available until 30 June 2021. Subsidies cover $45 plus GST per hour for up to 10 participants.
In August 2019, NDS released the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Guide and Toolkit to assist disability service organisations to develop their capability to grow their Aboriginal workforce.
Facilitated by NDS and Aboriginal Cultural Consultant, Mandy Gadsdon, the workshop complements NDS’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Guide and Toolkit, taking participants through a self-assessment process that identifies their organisation’s strengths, areas for improvement and actions across organisational readiness and employment strategies.
