Who should attend?

The course is beneficial for government staff at all levels, and for staff working with NGOs, Indigenous organisations, mining companies or other private sector employers. Although it will be tailored to Indigenous contexts, most of the training will be relevant to tackling complex social problems in urban centres, country towns and developing countries.  Participants will bring a range of experiences and knowledge, and we will draw this into the course to maximise its relevance.

The course will be restricted to a maximum of 25 trainees to create a dynamic space for learning and collaboration, so early registration is advised.  If you would like to register for this course click here.  UQ staff and students please contact the Education Program Coordinator Cara Herington to arrange registration.  For all general enquiries regarding this course please email Cara Herington.
