Joint ventures are logical business models when it comes to building in remote communities. They address the issue of a permanent labour source and capitalise on people who best understand remote community needs - structurally and culturally. In return, Muway can provide its Aboriginal apprentices and trainees with nationally recognised accredited training, helping the Government's initiative to "close the gap" between non- Aboriginal and Aboriginal employment by fostering self-sustainability. At the same time we can help our clients meet their commitment to engage Aboriginal contractors.
Muway Constructions nurtures its Aboriginal trainees and apprentices through structured 'on the job' training and accredited certificate training via local Training Institutes (TAFEs).
We can offer our Aboriginal employees the following accredited training programs:
All new trainees and apprentices can transition easily from unemployment to casual or full-time work and training through 'Work Readiness' courses run by the local Training Institutes. Certificates such as "Getting Access to Training and Employment" and "Leadership Development" help empower young Aboriginal people with the basic life skills required to undertake an apprenticeship or traineeship.
Muway recognises that mentoring support is critical to retaining Aboriginal employees. By engaging respected Aboriginal mentors to consistently motivate and inspire each individual and address any cross-cultural issues, we have a greater chance of keeping our Aboriginal employees in the business. Once qualified, these local qualified tradespeople can help sustain their own families and communities through ongoing employment with Muway or other building companies or even by starting their own businesses.
At Muway Constructions, we are "building for the future" - building capacity in remote areas.
