Employment and Training

Strategies, Programs and Systems

KBC has extensive experience developing and advising on Indigenous Employment Strategies for mining clients.

We have helped many businesses understand how recruiting and retaining Indigenous employees differs from mainstream approaches to resourcing.

Our wide experience in this area allows us to identify and adapt best practice from around Australia to the needs of each client. We can assist you to develop a clear business case for investment in Indigenous employment; work with internal stakeholders to develop appropriate strategy documents and secure buy-in across your organisation.

KBC also assists our clients to design and implement the programs and systems that make up an Indigenous Employment Strategy. These include pre-employment, traineeship, cadetship, apprenticeship and cultural awareness training programs. We have experience in training needs analysis, training pathways review and evaluation and in the design of training management systems.

KBC has an in-depth knowledge of the Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) and the TAFE sector and the ability to integrate accreditation into program design.

While KBC has specialised in developing training programs for Indigenous participants, the careful approach we take to training design in cross-cultural contexts means that we are equally effective at designing training for mainstream participants. KBC has undertaken a range of mainstream training project and reviews.

Some of our programs, originally designed for Indigenous participants, have proven so effective that they have been generalised to all participants. Similarly our approach to local and cross-cultural employment and training has been applied in international contexts where many of the same challenges apply.
