Indigenous Apprenticeship and Traineeship Network

Our dedicated Indigenous Apprenticeship and Traineeship Network (IATN) currently employs, trains or mentors over 200 indigenous people. Our experienced IATN team provide assistance with training, mentoring and cultural awareness for both the employer and the employee.

Vocational Training and Employment Centre
