TDC’s department of Employment and Training is contracted to deliver the Community Development Program (CDP) in Wadeye, Palumpa and Peppimenarti including surrounding outstations and homelands.We provide services to job seekers including the provision of Work for the Dole activities, training and development opportunities, and job search skills. Our role in the community is to work with job seekers, employers and other relevant stakeholders to ensure workforce development needs are met and local community members are given every opportunity to achieve success through sustainable employment.
Our CDP staff provide case management services to job seekers who are in receipt of Centrelink benefits including resume building, identification of training needs to meet employment demands, post placement employment support and mentoring. We also provide activities for people to increase their skills, learn about how to get and keep a job, and thus providing benefit to the community.
In addition to delivery of CDP, the Employment and Training Department are expanding their services to offer workforce development services across the community. This includes working with employers and stakeholders to identify future employment opportunities. We hope to ensure appropriate training programs can be developed to assist all community members to improve their skills prior to employment.
