Aboriginal Training Services support

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students are eligible for a range of support services through our on-campus Aboriginal Training Services (ATS) team. The ATS team delivers culturally appropriate training support for students, trainees and apprentices, assisting in identifying needs to maximise enrolment, course completion and employment opportunities.

Our dedicated ATS team provides the following support services:

  • Assistance with study and talking to lecturers
  • In-class support, both academic and practical
  • Mentoring, tutor support and career counselling
  • The Indigenous Tutorial Assistance Scheme (ITAS)
  • Informal counselling and mentoring
  • Liaison with Centrelink, Abstudy, Job Services Australia, Remote Jobs and Communities Program and other service providers
  • Assistance arranging accommodation, transport and study support resources such as workwear, protective equipment and learning aids
  • Referrals or information about other services such as financial counselling, childcare and health needs

In addition, the ATS team provides:

  • Advice on culturally appropriate learning methods and environments within NR TAFE
  • Tailored services to external agencies and employers
  • Consultation with Aboriginal communities and organisations to identify community development projects and negotiated training plans to address unique local needs

All ATS staff employ collaborative work practices within NR TAFE and with external stakeholders to achieve the best possible training and employment outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) students. NR TAFE encourages existing and prospective ATSI students to provide any suggestions in which they believe will improve service delivery.
