Aboriginal Workforce Development Centres
Our AWDCs assist Aboriginal people in Western Australia to plan or further their careers, get into training and find employment. We also work closely with employers and industry to create employment opportunities for Aboriginal people. AWDCs can provide:
- career guidance;
- information about training options; and
- support to improve your job search skills.
If you'd like to find out more about AWDCs and how we can help you, or any of our services including the free online jobs board, our centres are open Monday to Friday during business hours. Call 1800 441 043 to find your nearest AWDC, or take a look at our website for AWDC locations all across Western Australia.
The AWDC website has lots of great resources about career development, training and finding work. It also includes a jobs board with employment opportunities for Aboriginal people and an online space where you can save your CV/résumé, references, job applications or portfolio.
Aboriginal youth transitions program for school students
In 2016 AWDCs started the Aboriginal youth transitions program with the aim of increasing the number of Aboriginal youth making a successful transition to further education, training or employment after leaving school.
The program seeks to:
- raise the aspirations of Aboriginal school students in Years 10 to 12;
- ensure that students have completed a career transition plan before leaving school;
- provide access to advice on careers and training options; and
- gain work experience where possible.
The AWDCs will continue to offer support and guidance to young people to help fulfil their career plans after they leave school.
To find out more about the AYT program, please contact your local AWDC.
