Aboriginal leadership course - latest graduates

Congratulations to the latest cohort of Aboriginal leaders to complete South Metropolitan TAFE’s Certificate IV in Leadership and Mentoring course.

Now in its fourth year, the course launched as a nation-first management program in 2014 with nineteen graduates and has grown in popularity ever since. The nationally-recognised qualification provides its Aboriginal participants with the opportunity to learn a range of management strategies that can be implemented across all industries.

Designed in a way to enable full-time employees to complete the program, the course is delivered over a six month period which includes three face-to-face blocks and online study.

Education officer Ashley Otway and Breanna Jones a project support officer for the Housing Authority were among the latest group of participants to graduate from the course.

Ashley said she enjoyed every aspect of the program.

“The course gave me the opportunity to be a part of something amazing and provided me with skills and knowledge that will last a lifetime.

“I now feel empowered to chase those career goals that I have been thinking about for a long time but never pursued before because I didn’t have the confidence.”

Breanna believes completing the course, though it forced her out of her comfort zone, has given her the ability to make a real difference within her community.

“This course exceeded my expectations and I have a newfound belief in myself.”

Breanna plans to complete a graduate certificate in Human Resources at university, where if successful, she will go on to complete a masters degree.
