Undertaking inspirational training

Last week Papulu Apparr-kari staff undertook vital training to learn new skills to compliment on-the-job duties.
A Youth Mental Health First Aid course was conducted by Dianne Borella in Tennant Creek and staff learned how to provide initial help to young people experiencing depressive, anxiety, psychotic, substance use and eating disorders and associated crises.
The training was well received and staff were thrilled with the new information and knowledge they gained and hope to put it to good use at work.
Benji Thompson said: “The training was really interesting and will help us do our jobs better.”
The course was made possible with funding from NT Government’s Department of Trade Business and Innovation.
Another team embarked on training in restoration and archival procedures in Batchelor at Batchelor College and Charles Darwin University campus.
The training covered all aspects of archival procedures and will be a great asset for staff and the Language Centre in regards to the major archival program they are currently undertaking.
Attendee Jordan Gillard said it was great to undertake the training and everyone had learned a lot.
Another attendee Tanya Jones said the training was much needed.
“It will enable us to continue with the archival process and ensure all of our items are preserved to be used in our future projects and for history preservation,” she said.
