Waltja strongly supports professional development for workers by:
- Ensuring that all workers have the skills and qualifications they need for their work.
- Recruiting, supporting and mentoring Aboriginal trainees across all program areas at Waltja.
- Providing support and opportunities for trainees and other workers for long-term career development.
Waltja has worked with the Australian Government National Jobs Transition Program and Group Training NT for a number of years as partners in recruiting and supporting Aboriginal trainees. Waltja has also partnered with the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation for mentoring support for staff involved in Waltja’s art, culture and social media work (see Tjukurrpa Tjutangku report).
