Future Stars Indigenous Employment Program
The Future Stars Indigenous Employment Program is a four-week Life skills and Work-Ready Program run by the Karen Sheldon Training team that focuses on assisting participants to develop the capacity to transition from welfare dependence towards sustainable long-term employment and a future career.
We help participants engage at their own level to develop self-awareness and self-esteem using creative and engaging motivational concepts that are personally tailored.
Many Future Stars may not have had the early developmental advantages often taken for granted and moving towards a working life can be a quantum leap into another world. Early modules work around the concepts of self-care, time planning and basic life skills, then gradually introduce employability skills, money management and exploring personal strengths.
As the Program progresses, participants engage in a series of modules designed to be interesting, relevant and fun whilst also giving them a real insight into where they hope to be in the future and working out how they are going to get there.
The Future Stars Program was developed in the Northern Territory and evolved over a decade in response to the wide gaps between many participants needs and employer expectations. Using world’s best practice, the Program continues to evolve and grow, learning from the trust developed with Future Stars themselves, and with their families and friends, and from the many employers and stakeholder networks across remote and regional centres in the Territory.
The Future Stars Indigenous Employment Program is currently contracted through Saltbush Social Enterprises. To sign-up you must be connected with a JobActive and identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait islander to participate in this course.
