Skills for Life

Digital Walkabout


Skills for Life overview – Skills for Life (SFL) is an innovative initiative aimed at empowering First Nations participants by equipping them with essential employability skills and specialised labour market training, paving clear pathways to employment opportunities.

SFL focuses on building confidence, self-worth and a sense of belonging through differentiated training that integrates the 8 Ways of Learning and the Core Skills for Work Developmental Frameworks. Co-facilitated by Gadhungal Marring and One Training, the program emphasises cultural connection, incorporating Indigenous pedagogy and fosters inclusivity and respect for unique cultural heritage. This approach creates a supportive environment where participants feel valued and supported, enhancing their ability to succeed in employment, promote personal growth, development and wellbeing while deepening their connection with their cultural heritage.
