Corporation-specific training

What is this training about?

Corporation-specific training is tailored to meet the individual requirements of the group or corporation requesting it. Workshops can be held all over Australia, usually at a corporation’s premises or within their community. The range of CST workshops include:

  • Governance training—this is what most corporations request. In advance of the training we can negotiate to address specific issues in your corporation—and you can let us know which of the following modules are priorities for your corporation:
    • the structure of corporate governance
    • directors and the separation of responsibilities
    • financial management
    • meetings
    • members
    • planning
    • decision-making
    • dispute resolution
  • Pre-incorporation doorway service (including transfers and amalgamations)—this workshop provides information on becoming registered under the CATSI Act, and introduces requirements and processes for operating as a registered Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander corporation.
  • Rules design and re-design workshop—this workshop gives advice on rule requirements under the CATSI Act. It also provides examples of governance structures. We can facilitate discussion and decision-making around rules for your corporation, as well as help draft and develop the rule book.
  • Corporation support and mentoring—this program was initiated to support corporations over a six-month period. It aims to support the corporation to achieve mutually agreed outcomes.

How are the workshops structured?

The workshops are tailored for each group or corporation. Depending on their circumstances, they run for one or two days. The program develops in collaboration with the corporation. If we are well-informed of your circumstances in advance of the training, we can ensure the program is optimised to meet your needs.

We require the corporation to arrange a venue and provide catering as required.

Cost Free—other than any venue and catering charges that may be incurred
