Employment and Training

The RRKAC Employment and Training program is a holistically designed multi-tiered program that focuses on engaging and supporting Robe River Kuruma members to find, gain, and maintain meaningful employment. RRKAC’s Member Support teamwork with all participants on a 1:1 basis to formulate a personalised plan to set and reach their employment goals.

Employment Pathways Program (EPP).
The EPP is designed to take a group of 10 RRK people through six phases of employment support over three weeks of intensive group work, alongside self-paced individual pathway building designed to support members to get job ready, address employment barriers, build capacity and gain an understanding of employment industries within our region.

RRKAC Casual Pool

The RRKAC Casual Pool provides an opportunity for members to undertake casual hours within the office, RRKAC programs, and events as an avenue to build on existing experience or learn new skills within a formal work environment.

By engaging members in this space, we can prepare them to enter the workforce, build confidence at work and provide an opportunity to grow in a supportive environment. Many of our casual RRK employees take on formal traineeships, or permanent full time or part time employment within the Corporation.
