31 Career Development & Counselling Program Career Development and counselling activities of the Division are linked to all of the Division's other programs. The aim of the program is to provide Aboriginal people with a development program that will enable them to aquire the new skills required to enter or obtain promotion or transfer within the NTPS. Public Sector Youth Awareness Program For Aboriginal Youth The Division has piloted an awareness course for Aboriginal youth attending Secondary Schools. The course objective is to encourage Aboriginal youth to remain at school longer; to realise the important links between educational achievement and employment opportunity; to provide participants with an opportunity to discuss these issues with mature Aboriginals who have succeeded in employment; to achieve a raised level of self esteem and to aspire to achievement in all aspects of life. The course is offered at the end of the School year.
