Things to think about

This is part of a national accredited training package developed specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who wish to improve their corporate governance and management skills.

This is residential training and may be held a long way from some participants' homes.

Accommodation will be on a twin share basis. We hope that people will be able to support each other while away from home.

Applications from corporation employees must be supported and signed by the CEO and a director of the corporation.

Participants will also need support from their family or community as they will be away from home for five weeks over the course. Travel for each block of training will usually be on a Sunday going to the course and returning home on a Saturday.

There will be work and assessments to be completed in between blocks of training.

Who can attend?

Applications are welcome from all directors, future directors, members and key staff of Indigenous corporations registered under the CATSI Act (maximum of four people per corporation).

Other requirements

Participants must have completed the Certificate IV in Business (Governance).

Participants need to be committed to the training, have a sense of fun and be willing to work with and learn from others.

It is expected that participants will show respect to themselves, other participants and the trainer.

How to apply

Seek the support of your corporation and family.
