On Friday, 10th November, a profound sense of pride and accomplishment filled the air as we gathered to celebrate the graduation of 16 indigenous students who successfully completed phase one of the Wilson Security ‘Making Tracks’ program.
This initiative represents a significant step towards empowering indigenous communities, fostering education, and creating opportunities for a brighter future.
A Milestone Achievement
The graduation ceremony marked a milestone achievement for the participants, their families, and the community at large. The ‘Making Tracks’ program, spearheaded by Wilson Security, focuses on providing valuable skills and training to indigenous individuals, creating pathways for meaningful employment and personal development.
The Role of Asset College
At the heart of this achievement lies the pivotal role played by Asset College, which facilitated the training in CPP20218 Certificate II in Security Operations. The comprehensive training provided by Asset College has equipped the graduates with the necessary knowledge and skills to excel in the field of security operations.
Indigenous Workstars and Five Bridges: Mentors and Guides
Integral to the success of the ‘Making Tracks’ program is the guidance provided by Indigenous Workstars and Five Bridges, serving as mentors and guides for the candidates not only during the training but also as they navigate their future employment with Wilson Security. The mentorship ensures a seamless transition from training to the workforce, offering ongoing support and advice to help the graduates thrive in their careers.
The Journey of Phase One
The first phase of the program, completed by these 16 inspiring individuals, has been an intensive journey of learning, growth, and self-discovery. From developing essential life skills to gaining practical knowledge in security operations under the guidance of Asset College, Indigenous Workstars and Five Bridges, the participants have demonstrated resilience and determination throughout the process.
Empowering Indigenous Communities
One of the core objectives of the ‘Making Tracks’ program is to empower indigenous communities by creating opportunities for education and employment. By collaborating with Asset College, Indigenous Workstars and Five Bridges, Wilson Security ensures that the training is not only comprehensive but also culturally sensitive, recognising the unique needs and backgrounds of the participants.
Building a Bridge to Employment
The successful completion of phase one is not just a celebration; it is a bridge to future employment opportunities for these graduates. Wilson Security, in collaboration with Asset College, Indigenous Workstars and Five Bridges, is committed to facilitating the seamless transition of these individuals into the workforce, ensuring that the skills acquired during the program translate into meaningful careers.
Cultural Sensitivity and Inclusivity
What sets the ‘Making Tracks’ program apart is its commitment to cultural sensitivity and inclusivity. Recognising and respecting the unique cultural backgrounds of the participants, the program, with the support of Asset College, Five Bridges and Indigenous Workstars, aims to create an environment where diversity is celebrated, and individuals feel a sense of belonging as they pursue their career aspirations.
Community Impact and Future Prospects
The impact of the ‘Making Tracks’ program, facilitated by Asset College and guided by Indigenous Workstars and Five Bridges, extends beyond the individual participants. As these graduates integrate into the workforce, they become role models and sources of inspiration for younger generations within their communities. The ripple effect of this collaborative initiative is poised to contribute to the long-term socio-economic development of indigenous populations.
