ALC 15 year Strategic Plan Executive Summary 14 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 roles and career development. The program would be headed by a Steering Committee that would develop the terms of reference and to oversee and endorse the development of the program. A memorandum of understanding would be developed between the ALC and participating employers, which includes the understanding that the employer would financially support its employees undertaking the Anindilyakwa leadership program. GOAL E: WORKING WITH ALL PARTNERS Working with all partners, including all local Indigenous organisations, businesses, Australian, Territory and local government agencies, and non-government organisations is crucial for the success of the Strategic Plan.

The Report found the RPA to be working strongly as a government, Indigenous community and industry partnership.... [It] exhibits effective qualities of leadership, an ethos of collaboration, trust and effective management practice. The evaluation highlights that the success of the RPA arrangements cannot be attributed to one factor or indeed several factors in isolation. It is a combination of a number of key inputs and processes that has determined the overall success of the RPA (Tempo Strategies, 2012, p.6). Notably, the needs and aspirations of Indigenous communities is the driving force for the partnership and that the community through the ALC has identified an overall vision, priority issues to be
