TAFE NSW’s third Bangamalanha Conference will be held in Dubbo from September 10 to 12.
It will focus on the delivery of “successful post-school education, training and employment outcomes” for Aboriginal peoples, reports state Member for Dubbo Troy Grant.
Bangamalanha means “to share with each other”.
“That’s exactly what this conference is all about,” Mr Grant said.
“Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people gathering from across the country to work on strategies to bridge the gap Aboriginal peoples face when it comes to education, training and employment.”
“It’s an important opportunity to learn about Aboriginal culture and engage in meaningful conversations to create real and long-lasting improvements in closing these gaps.
“This conference is another example of the importance that the NSW government places on providing access to real-life training and employment opportunities and delivers on our commitment to train a highly-skilled workforce of the future.”
Mr Grant told of inspirational speakers lined up for the conference.
“Australian television news and political journalist Stan Grant is the keynote speaker and will be joined by presenters such as public health and Indigenous affairs advocate Tom Calma, celebrity chef Mark ‘The Black Olive’ and Indigenous legal expert Terri Janke,” he said.
