Business Governance Short Course
KEEN TO GET INVOLVED IN YOUR COMMUNITY?
PASSIONATE ABOUT HELPING INDIGENOUS ORGANISATIONS TO GROW AND PROSPER?
WANT TO BE EMPOWERED TO CONTRIBUTE?
A short course in Business Governance may be for you! Tranby National Indigenous Adult Education & Training is offering a Short Course in Business Governance, a pathway into valuable and fulfilling work in community organisations.
What is Business Governance?
It’s about the effective management and oversight of organisations and empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. It’s working with organisational leadership teams to ensure businesses are run effectively and in accordance with regulations, and that culture is protected and the roles and responsibilities of governance are fulfilled. It applies to organisations across all sectors - so roles in business governance offer lots of options, depending on where your interests lie.
What opportunities does this present?
There is a continuing need for people in Indigenous organisations who are knowledgeable about business governance, particularly for roles such as:
- Board Member
- Board Secretary
- Executive Director
- Non-Executive Director
Who should apply?
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are keen to be an effective member of a Board or Management Committee of an Indigenous community organisation, or who are interested in a career in management.
How does the course work?
It’s delivered over two face-to-face training sessions (we call them ‘Blocks’). Each Block runs for five days, and is held at Tranby’s campus in Glebe, Sydney. We offer a unique and culturally competent learning environment that supports and nurtures Indigenous adult students. Students also spend at least 15 hours per week between Blocks undertaking research, reading and assessment activities. Assessments must be submitted prior to the second block.
Students who successfully complete one or more units of competency will be awarded a statement of attainment towards BSB41915 Certificate IV in Business (Governance).
What does it cost?
The training is subsidised by the NSW Government. Transport and accommodation costs for students travelling to Sydney is provided in accordance with Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet ‘Away from Base’ guidelines. ABSTUDY support is based on individual circumstances.
What will I study?
You’ll learn a variety of hands on practical skills, including the roles and responsibilities of Board Members, protecting culture, representing an organisation, and communication and conflict management, all of which can be applied to the day-to- day management and governance of an organisation.
