Our Reconciliation Action Plan
Building a respectful, diverse, equal and inclusive place for all people
Navitas Skilled Futures is proud to commence our journey to reconciliation with the development of this Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan. Navitas joins a network of more than 2,200 corporate, government, and not-for-profit organisations that have made a formal commitment to reconciliation through the RAP program.
As part of our commitment to develop a more inclusive workforce, the Navitas Reflect Reconciliation Plan has been identified as a key action to further our current Diversity Equity & Inclusion (DEI) initiative in order to support the employment and advancement of people from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds. This plan has been identified as a priority initiative by the Navitas Executive Leadership Team and forms part of our broader commitment to develop a more respectful, diverse, equal and inclusive place for our people to learn, work and thrive.
We acknowledge that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have unique lived experiences due to the legacy of colonialism and discrimination, and have established a separate governance structure to oversee the RAP development and implementation.
Our Reflect RAP is focused on engaging Navitas staff in the reconciliation journey and identifying ways to increase their understanding of, and respect for, First Nations histories, cultures, knowledge and rights.
To assist in the creation of our Reconciliation Action Plan, Navitas engaged local artist Marcia McGuire, a Whadjuk, Ballardong and Yamatji Aboriginal woman from Perth, Western Australia to create a piece of art designed to reflect the Navitas values and commitment to transforming lives through education with the use of Whadjuk Noongar patterns and symbols.
“This artwork encompasses Navitas as a whole, describes how the organisation will bring every part of itself into the Reconciliation Action Plan. It reflects how Navitas can use its expertise to empower this change and movement while growing and learning side by side with First Nations peoples”Marcia McGuire
Other Support Services
If you have young children, you can still study with us. We work with a childcare company called KU Children’s Services to offer you free* childcare while you study with Navitas Skilled Futures.
At Navitas Skilled Futures, we know it is not easy to find a job and feel at home when you cannot speak English. That is why we can talk to you in your own language.
Our Volunteer Tutor Scheme is designed to help migrants and refugees who cannot attend our AMEP classes, or who need extra learning support.
Work placements are where you work somewhere for a short time with real bosses, in real companies. We have helped hundreds of people get new skills for their CVs and find jobs this way, and we can help you too.
While we make sure our lessons are interesting and fun, we do a lot more for young people than just sit in a classroom. We focus on how young people learn best.
