The Department embraces the spirit of reconciliation, and plays a key role in helping Aboriginal people in our community acquire skills, qualifications and employment. 

Our third Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a culmination of learnings through our ongoing reconciliation journey in which we aim to embed and continuously improve our cultural capacity. 

Our Innovate RAP strengthens the voice of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees in shaping the strategies and initiatives that influence their working environment. It deepens our engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stakeholders and other government agencies, and continues our commitment to focus on maximising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s participation in training and sustainable employment. By strengthening and growing these partnerships, we will ensure a broad range of perspectives are included to inform best practice within the training and workforce development sector.
