This course explores and discusses the concepts and professional practices to develop an understanding of the factors surrounding Indigenous people's engagement in employment (particularly in the public sector workforce).

You will develop specific skills relevant to Indigenous people's engagement in a public sector work environment, retention, workplace support and development. Issues that surround the contexts of Indigenous people's participation in employment are addressed in ways that respect people's cultures, worldviews and socioeconomic status.

Your studies focus on ensuring you can demonstrate what you learn in a culturally informed and respectful manner.

Career opportunities

Graduating from this course may lead to career opportunities to work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, organisations and communities, government departments and agencies or private agencies and businesses that are involved in Indigenous affairs.
