Indigenous Employment & Training - Bayalgu

Central to EMR Golden Grove’s community engagement and support is the Bayalgu Indigenous Pre-employment Training Program. This program seeks to improve Indigenous representation in employment in Western Australia’s Mid West region. It plays a valuable role in providing Indigenous Australians living in EMR Golden Grove’s host communities with a range of work readiness skills and competencies to support their entry into the resources, civil construction and associated service industries.

The training course is supported by a program partnership framework with a number of industry, education, government and non-government organisations contributing to the partnership network. Run over ten weeks, the program primarily targets Indigenous Australians both male and female aged 18 years and over, and features a number of training activities that lead to a Certificate II in Resource and Infrastructure as well as relevant Work Safe qualifications.

The  program includes ongoing mentoring where the mentor provides a link between trainees, families, employers, supervisors and third party support agencies, and also supports participants in their transition from training to employment.

For further information regarding the courses please contact the course coordinator Clint Henderson 0428360013 or email clint.henderson@emrgoldengrove.com
