The core focus of the program is to build confidence within each employee and teach them the skills they need to apply for jobs and continue to work in the Industry. 2016 was an exciting year for some! The NTCA RJP had four employees graduate from the program and they have gone on into full time work in the pastoral industry. The annual pre-employment training block that is held in March at the NTCA Bohning Cattle Yards is becoming well known in the industry for its content and the quality of training that is delivered by NTCA staff (Tara Fulwood & Jason Craigie) and horsemanship trainers (Steve Burke & Michelle Chalmers) of Horsepower Training. The training block is loaded with excitement for the newly recruited RJP employees as they are selected through an information session and interview process to attend. They are given the opportunity to travel to new country, meet new people from different communities and learn new skills in a very well supported environment. The training block goes for two weeks and then they are off to the station into full time jobs. The NTCA is also excited to be recognising young Indigenous people who have graduated from the program and have been working in the Industry for several years. This recognition is happening through the Young Emerging Indigenous Pastoral Leader Award in name of the late Alward Foster. This award will be continued to be presented in the future at the Annual NTCA Conferences. We look forward to forming a leadership group that will soon be representing the industry. We would like to thank the host stations that are part of the RJP for your continued support. All the best for another year on the land! NTCA Real Jobs Program The Real Jobs Program (RJP) allows young Indigenous people to be part of a program for two years where they are supported and trained by their host stations and by NTCA RJP staff.
