Project Proposal Overview:
The NTCA Industry Development Project – Certificate II in Rural Operations is a progressive and innovative program that engages, trains, and supports young pastoralists by providing nationally accredited training. The focus of this program is to equip young pastoralists with a nationally accredited skill set that will assist them to maintain employment and advance their careers within the industry.
The programs ambition is to increase young peoples’ engagement in the northern pastoral industry through the delivery of training and employment opportunities.
The NTCA Industry Development Project – Certificate II in Rural Operations will be supported
by the NT Cattlemen’s Association membership base, who represent 90% of the NT’s pastoral
industry. This membership base will support their current employees through the structured
training on campus and in the workplace.
Charles Darwin University will deliver the program.
Upon completion the students will have a nationally accredited Certificate II in Rural Operations
as well as the units required to safely purchase handle and distribute 1080 baits. These units have been highlighted as highly desirable by industry employers.
The qualification will be delivered in 6.5 weeks of intensive on campus training with the remainder of the training will be delivered and assessed as workplace assessment. Training will occur at the Katherine Rural College and the Grant Heaslip Training Facility.
The NTCA is now seeking expressions of interest from people interested in participating in the program.
