Submission to the Indigenous Jobs and Training Review

This submission proposes key strategies to be implemented by Government for consideration by the Indigenous Training and Employment Review. The Minerals Council of Australia (MCA) is the peak national industry association representing exploration, mining and minerals processing companies in Australia.  MCA members account for more than 93% of annual minerals production in Australia and a slightly higher proportion of minerals exports. Members of the MCA have been at the forefront of Indigenous economic development for a number of years, negotiating agreements with traditional owners for access to land and providing employment and business development opportunities for communities.This submission proposes key strategies to be implemented by Government for consideration by the Indigenous Training and Employment Review.  The strategies are premised on the vocational education and training (VET) system being responsive to industry skill needs rather than what the VET system is able to deliver and the identification of meaningful jobs within sustainable economies.  Their focus is on the preparation for employment, training and connection with a job for Indigenous Australians in regional, remote and very remote communities based on the lessons learnt among the members of the MCA.
