BUSY At Work works closely with organisations and businesses to create and provide work opportunities for Indigenous Australians.
The Indigenous Advancement Strategy consolidates the many different Indigenous policies and programmes that were delivered by Government into five overarching programmes, making it easier for organisations delivering local services.
The new programme streams are:
- Jobs, Land and Economy
- Children and Schooling
- Safety and Wellbeing
- Culture and Capability
- Remote Australia Strategies
The Indigenous Advancement Strategy is changing the way Australian Government funding is delivered to ensure it is more flexible and better designed to meet the aspirations and priorities of individual communities. Together, we can achieve real and lasting results to close the gap on disadvantage and ensure all Australians have the same opportunities in life.
Our experienced Indigenous consultants assist employers with the skills and cultural knowledge necessary to provide sustainable employment opportunities for Indigenous Australians. In turn, they also work with the local communities to prepare Indigenous Australians to take up job opportunities and enhance their employment prospects.
BUSY At Work has a skilled workforce that delivers coaching to Indigenous candidates as we understand that a highly skilled and capable workforce is critical to any organisation. We have a strong desire and passion to ensure that candidates succeed in their endeavours. We have worked on several successful Indigenous employment programs providing coaching to candidates with great success.
- Critical Skills Training
Critical Skills Training will offer training in important workplace behaviour skills, such as a workplace communication, appropriate workplace behaviour and improved personal performance. This training complements the technical aspects of the apprenticeship and equips the apprentices/trainees with fundamental interpersonal skills.
- Employee Coaching Programs
The purpose of the coaching program is to monitor and review the Apprentice’s application of skills development into the workplace. Their individual development plan will document the agreed goals and associated actions required to respond to the workplace successes and challenges.
- Leadership Training
This training will be customised to suit an organisation’s needs. We offer several strategies to develop leadership, time management, goal setting to outcomes, self-leadership and leadership, workplace communications, coaching for success and problem solving.
- Pre-employment Programs
These programs are developed for corporate organisations or communities who want to provide employment outcomes for residents within a community or organisation. These programs are focussed on providing sustainable employment outcomes for the participants. The programs can be Indigenous specific and provide opportunities for all stakeholders to be involved in the development or implementation of the programs.
