The Warrgamugardi Yirdiyabura (WY) Program makes a positive contribution to the local community through the up-skilling, training and educations of local people for employment readiness in the local economy.

The program is funded by the North West Shelf Venture & Woodside and managed by NYFL through offering 2 year supported employment, education and training period for the local Aboriginal Community with a supporting host.

Host organisations, from local businesses to large Resources Corporations, support a work-based traineeship and apprenticeships for local individuals who have committed to the WY Program. To date, some of the traineeships and up-skilling for members of the program have included:

  • Cert III Primary Indigenous Health
  • Cert II in Construction
  • Cert II in Community Services (Youth and Family)
  • Cert III in Community Services (Child Care)
  • Work experience at the ESS/NYFL Bay Village accommodation.
  • Roebourne School Canteen.
  • First Aid certification.
  • Literacy and computer skills training courses.
  • Cultural awareness workshops for supporting host organisations.
  • Cert II & III in Hospitality
  • Cert II & III in Business

Success as at 2017

Since NYFL took over the management of the program, the WY Program has provided up-skilling, training and education for 13 local people, since July 2010. Many of the graduates are approaching completion of their 2 year accredited certificates and will be viewed for permanent employment by the host organisations.
