The Program is designed to provide a pathway for people that may not ordinarily have the opportunity to enter the technology field. It seeks to give them all the information and skills development needed to gain a solid foundation to go on and be successful in that field.
We anticipate that all learners will have a passion and aptitude that will allow them to embrace every aspect of the program.
The Yapang Initiative is both comprehensive and intense – the selection criteria and enrolment processes that are applied to learners will ensure that the people seeking to join the Program have a clear commitment to the program’s objectives and the anticipated outcomes.
Learners will be expected to have appropriate levels of language, literacy and numeracy and interest in gaining technology skills.
The Yapang team are in contact with a range of organisations to assist in the identification and attraction of candidates. We will be contacting Local Aboriginal Land Councils, Job Network Providers, contracted recruitment companies, not-for-profit community-based organisations, State and Federal Affirmative Measures agencies, e.g. National Indigenous Australians Agency, Veteran organisations, Women in STEM organisations, and other sources.
