Music Skills and Enterprise Development Training The Department of Employment, Education and Training (DEET) has provided $ 42 670 towards an Aboriginal Music Development Pilot Project that will enable Indigenous musicians to gain economic and employment opportunities in the music industry. Funding will cover delivery of nationally accredited and industry specifi c training for members associated with a group from Mamardawerre in the Jabiru region. The training and support will assist the group to develop into a music enterprise, including the production of saleable products. The project involves various partners including the industry training body, Cultural, Recreation and Tourism Training Advisory Council (CHARTTES), Skinnyfi sh Music, a music producer and distributor, Nabarlek Band for mentoring support and training and Stringybark Training, a Registered Training Organisation that delivers the accredited industry training. Training News from Around the Territory When asked if there was any advice or words of wisdom Candice would like to offer to anyone considering a career in hospitality, Candice commented, You have to have a passion for it. Its hard work and you have to be sure its what you want to do Candice was due to fi nish her apprenticeship during December 2005 and had plans to move to Perth where she hoped to be able to continue to work as a Chef and expand on the experiences already gained. Of course we are hoping Candice may decide to stay in Darwin and share her culinary skills with those of us interested in fi ne food. Governance Training for Indigenous Pastoral Stations and Enterprises DEET has allocated $118 500 towards accredited governance training for Indigenous people involved in pastoral and community enterprises. The training will focus on requirements of individual community based enterprises to support their management and operational roles and responsibilities. Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education (BIITE) will conduct the training for community enterprises. The training for pastoral organisations will be delivered under an auspice arrangement between BIITE and Littlefi sh Pangaea, an organisation that has considerable expertise in delivering training for the pastoral sector in the Northern Territory. The pastoral governance training is linked to the Northern Territory Indigenous Pastoral Program and Indigenous Land Corporation with Farmbiz providing additional top-up funding for this program. 11
