Goal Indigenous Services and Lendlease Building continue to work together providing a scope of works across many different skill sets throughout the Northern Territory.
Four Wardaman people (Katherine region) were chosen to complete a program aligned to meet the following unit of competency: AHCFAU301A Respond to wildlife emergencies.
With over 25 venomous snakes in the Northern Territory and among them are the Western Brown and King Brown snakes, the ‘Spotter Catcher’ course was held at the beginning of the year and ran over three days; covering both theory and practical components. The group worked with snakes and other wild life including wombats and possums at the Shoalhaven Zoo on the south coast of New South Wales. This training has prepared them for the dry season when the group will be employed as snake catchers at Delamere.
This is another example of Goal Indigenous Services working with companies such as Lendlease, to not only to provide work but to assist in the training and education that leads to employment outcomes.
As long as it’s not me having to catch snakes I’m happy!
