ALC 15 year Strategic Plan 8. Goal D: Strengthen Community Capacity 108 Centres and engagement of the schools will support long-term goals of employment in the sectors. 131. Key programs or special employment programs will address the employment needs of the sectors: essential services (water, power, roads, building maintenances), food supply (market gardens), land management (rangers, control burning), transport (air services, barge supply), aged care (including services for MJD) and tourism (Dugong Beach Resort, Cultural Centres). Cluster initiatives will be launched as part of the Cultural Centre to promote Groote Eylandt to a national and international tourism market. These cultural enterprise initiatives should continue the interface between labour skills needed and the education system. 1.4 DEVELOP LEADERS There is a strong commitment within the ALC to provide the Traditional Owners with the capacity to take ownership of vital services for Groote Eylandt in preparedness of a future without mining. It is proposed that a Leadership Program is developed, which is open to Aboriginal employees on Groote Eylandt, regardless of the organisation they work in. The Leadership Program will provide leadership straining for Indigenous staff aspiring to take on leadership roles within organisations. The program will aim to give tailored learning for participants to gain skills and experience in management within a cross cultural environment. This program would ensure that key positions on Groote Eylandt within the ALC, GEBIE, and its subsidiaries, East Arnhem Shire Council, Aminjarrinja, GEAT and any other organisation develops a succession plan for Aboriginal staff to move into leadership roles. The program would be aimed at up-skilling Aboriginal employees in areas of literacy and numeracy, computer skills, report writing, understanding policies and procedures, cross cultural brokerage, specific skills to undertake their current roles and career development. A memorandum of understanding would be developed between the ALC and participating employers, which includes agreement that the participants employer would financially support their employees participation in the Anindilyakwa leadership program.
