Waltja Tjutangku Palyapayi

'Doing Good Work with Families'

Minister for Education, Aboriginal Affairs and Workforce Training, Ms Selena Uibo made a visit to Waltja. Waltja received support from the NT Government in the form of an Aboriginal Workforce Grant. This grant helps Waltja to support their Aboriginal staff members in social and multi-media training to advance their Ninti use of Technology (ninti is a lurijta word for clever). The grant aims to upskill staff to address the negitive impact of greater internet access in communities and to help others create and share their videos and messages, mentor new workers and adopt safe online practices. Minister Uibo was really pleased to meet the staff and Waltja Executive Director Enid Gallagher and on the job trainer Jane Clark from Netgrrl. CAAMA also did an interview on site and filmed the visit.
