Developing Job-skills

Categories: Employment, Job Seekers, Milikapiti

Chris Brogan works for TITEB in Milikapiti delivering the message that CDP activities are not all bad. After they’ve signed a job plan, Chris encourages people to fulfil their obligations so they don’t get penalised.

We all know it’s ‘work for the dole’ and as part of that TITEB offers a selection of activities. But some people underestimate how much good this program is doing for the community – and each individual participant. Lots of people end up in permanent jobs.

There’s landscaping, lawn mowing and taking care of gardens to prepare people for groundsmen-type jobs. The guys learn to operate machinery like a bobcat and chainsaw, which means they have the tickets they need for lumberjack work. Growing food is important to the economic development of the Tiwi Islands. For people interested growing fruit and vegetables, in Milikapiti we have hydroponics.

The men at Milikapiti have done an amazing job milling local mahogany (removed from the school grounds) and building furniture for the town, including tables and bench seating at the airport.

CDP participants can talk to Chris and other TITEB staff about their dreams and goals. Once we know what you need, we can find a way to help you develop those skills.
