Another round of Indigenous leaders has graduated from Australian Indigenous Leadership Centre (AILC) Ltd, with 20 participants completing a Certificate II in Indigenous Leadership in Cairns this week.
“Our graduates are a living testament to the talent and potential of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. They are a constant reminder of the importance of high quality accredited training with relevance and value to Indigenous people and their communities. The Australian Indigenous Leadership Centre is proud to be Australia’s only provider of accredited Indigenous leadership Training – making a significant impact on the future potential not just of individuals, but also their families and communities. The 20 participants in Cairns, QLD demonstrated these characteristics,” says Dr Tom Calma AO, Chair of the AILC.
“One of the main concepts of this course is that all participants take part in Daily Directors Roles. This simulated company allows participants to realistically practice their leadership skills,” said Yvette Cottier (AILC Participant).
The AILC programs offer Indigenous Australians the opportunity to develop skills that enable them to enhance their contribution to the community and access opportunities for promotion and/or career development, helping to Close the Gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians and up-skill the Indigenous workforce.
“I encourage all Indigenous people to become leaders of tomorrow because, as a nation, we must be in charge of the challenges that face our people and our lifestyle,” said Geraldine Narul (AILC Participant)
