Indigenous Leadership, Business Management Training

Are you an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander who wants to be a leader?

The dual Diploma is specifically designed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait islanders who have employment experience and/or who are interested in obtaining a high level qualification. Students will develop skills in implementing best practice strategies to manage Human Resources, Operations and Projects. One of the main reasons for the popularity of this course is that all assessment tasks can be adapted to students’ workplaces and coursework is workplace related and relevant.

The course consists of 4 x 10 day residential blocks of study over 11 months, as well as self-paced learning and assessment. TAFE North provides comprehensive academic learning and social support via email, telephone or the Web with qualified and interested support staff and teachers working with students during their enrolment period. It’s a perfect balance of face-to-face training and online flexibility suited to the needs of busy people. TAFE North has highly experienced trainers who will keep students’ on-track, motivated and engaged during fast-paced residential workshops.

Students are encouraged to work at their own self pace to complete their assessments within the course time frame, as well as learn from and interact with other students. Course details
