Things to think about

This is residential training and will be held in a central location. Usually the training room and accommodation are in the same venue.

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.

Who can attend?

Applications are welcome from all directors, future directors, members and key staff of Indigenous corporations registered under the CATSI Act.

Other requirements

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.
