Council of Territory Co-operation 25 First Report Julalikaris objectives in agreeing to leases for SIHIP work was employment and training for local Indigenous people.92 Ms Brahim said that Julalikaris approach was centred on building the capacity of local Aboriginal community and therefore, more broadly, building Tennant Creek, by trying to ensure work for tradespeople and businesses in Tennant Creek. Julalikari was also keen to develop employment and training into the future, post-SIHIP. Ms Brahim told the Council that SIHIP package employment and training in Tennant Creek is 30 per cent, compared to the SIHIP target of 20 per cent. She added that Julalikari has supplemented expenditure on employment and training through an agreement with Group Training NT, using the STEP project which has come from the Community Development Employment Program or CDEP.93 Recommendation 11 The Council recommends that every six months training and employment data for SIHIP is made publicly available. The data is to include a breakdown of employee and sub-contractor numbers, labour hours, training hours on-site and in the class room, and the types of trades and certificates that people are being trained in. Future directions for Council inquiry into SIHIP The Councils initial public hearings were in the Territorys large urban centres. Future hearings will include a number being held in smaller, non-urban centres. For example, in early February 2010 public hearings have been conducted at Nguiu and Wadeye. The Council anticipates that as SIHIP is a longer-term program the Council will continue to inquire into its progress in meeting goals and to identify and recommend any appropriate program delivery changes. The following are examples of areas that the Council is interested in following up. Timelines for starting and completing houses Infrastructure costs Tenancy management Aboriginal employment and the link to Working Future Home ownership. 92 LANT, CTC, Transcript of Proceedings, Tennant Creek, Thursday 19 November 2009, p.16. 93 LANT, CTC, Transcript of Proceedings, Tennant Creek, Thursday 19 November 2009, pp.17-8.
