Aboriginal Workforce Development Centres

Aboriginal Workforce Development Centres

Our AWDCs assist Aboriginal people in Western Australia to get into training or a job. We work closely with employers to create job opportunities for Aboriginal people, including school leavers. AWDCs can provide:

  • information on choosing the best training option;
  • access to job opportunities through the AWDC jobs board;
  • help with resumés and job applications; and
  • referral to other services, depending on your needs.

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 from Monday to Friday during business hours. Call 1800 441 043 to find your nearest AWDC, or take a look at our website for the location of AWDCs all across Western Australia.

Aboriginal youth transitions program for school students

In 2016 AWDCs started the Aboriginal youth transitions program to help young Aboriginal people transition to further education, training or jobs after leaving school.

The program seeks to:

  • raise the ambitions of Aboriginal school students in years 10 to 12;
  • ensure that students have a career transition plan completed before leaving school;
  • provide access to advice on careers and training options; and
  • offer work experience where available.

The AWDCs will continue to offer support and guidance to young people to help fulfil their aspirations after they leave school, via contact at regular intervals and access to specific services if required.

To find out more about the AYT program, please contact your local AWDC.
