Here at Ayers Rock Resort, we are proud to operate the National Indigenous Training Academy (NITA). This unique program provides an assortment of training and employment pathways for Indigenous Australians. Since 2011, over 500 young Indigenous Australians have successfully completed the program, earning nationally recognised qualifications in fields like hospitality, tourism, retail, and horticulture.
NITA is an incredibly valuable program, and we want to share more about it with you. And what better way to do this, than by speaking with those participating in the program right now? We reached out to a trainer, Jade Cooke, and a trainee, Amos Tom, to learn more about NITA. Here’s what they had to say.
