In 2020, TDC commenced the TDC Cadetship Program. The concept was born from the reoccurring issue of job shortages in the community for Kardu transitioning from school to work. It is a great example of a co-designed program by community leaders and T.D.C.
The program employs people with significant potential in administrative roles within the organisation. This exposure to working within TDC gives young people:
- The ability to earn an income while learning
- Jobs in community
- Exposure to decision-making processes
- Opportunities to access formal mentoring
- Career development
The Cadetship Program aims to evolve into a flexible and ongoing pathway of employment for young people from Wadeye and the Thamarrurr region. If you would like to become a part of this program please contact us on (08) 8941 1111.
