Training experience

Kimberley Training Institute is the largest training provider and longest operating vocational training organisation in the Kimberley. The Institute is committed to the training of Aboriginal people in the Kimberley region, and offers 120 qualifications. The Institute currently works with 5,000 students of whom 54% are Aboriginal people.

The Kimberley Training Institute has well developed, long standing systems and processes that work in concert with those of job and service providers, community-based organisations and industry employers. Through these relationships the Institute has been able to collaborate on a number of work readiness and personal development programs with organisations associated with Indigenous training and employment.

The Kimberley Training Institute delivers a specialised program 'Reading the country', which works with Indigenous people to share, teach and promote traditional knowledge. The Institute has been delivering training to the Kimberley Ranger Program for the past 4 years at Certificate II level and more recently at Certificate III and IV level in Conservation and Land Management. The program gets people working on country, and provides employment and skills training through practical work and nationally recognised qualifications. It has many flow-on benefits including improved social cohesion in communities with rangers emerging as positive role models.

Recent experience

Kimberley Training Institute has delivered cultural heritage management training to an Indigenous group within the last 12 months (valid at June 2013).
