MacKillop’s Koorie Youth Traineeships reinforce our commitment to supporting Indigenous communities.
MacKillop works in partnership with the Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency (VACCA) to provide Koorie Youth Traineeships for young people (aged 17-25 years) of Aboriginal background or Torres Strait Islander descent.
The Traineeship provides participants with on the job training and supports them to achieve a nationally recognised Certificate III or IV in Business.
While the traineeships are based in Victoria, they are open to anyone within Australia to apply.
Over the 12 months, participants will have the opportunity to work at both MacKillop Family Services and VACCA.
Each participant will receive training in:
- community engagement (marketing, communications and fundraising)
- IT Support
- training/learning and development
- quality and innovation
- property and facilities management
