​Information and support ​ ​

As an employer or business owner, it's important to have the most current information regarding resources and support that may be available to assist you in starting, retaining and further developing your Aboriginal workforce.

It is also useful to be aware of WA government strategies and initiatives across the state in the area of Aboriginal workforce development.

The resources and information in this section have been provided to assist you in the development and management of an Aboriginal workforce.

The Training Together – Working Together strategy

The Training Together – Working Together strategy is an initiative of the State Government in collaboration with Aboriginal communities and industry to increase the number of Aboriginal people in sustainable employment in Western Australia.

Connecting employers with Aboriginal job seekers, promoting Aboriginal role models and removing barriers to participation in the workforce are among the key recommendations outlined in the strategy.

In the 2014 review the Government updated the strategy, outlining next steps to continue addressing key barriers to Aboriginal people's successful participation in the workforce.
