Programs and services for the native title and broader Indigenous sectors
Aurora has to date been providing internships, training, professional development and scholarships to support staff working in native title. In addition, internships are available to over 100 other organisations in the broader Indigenous sector working in the area of policy development, land rights, social justice and research.
The Aurora Internship Program continues to attract enthusiastic participation by students and graduates from universities across Australia as well as overseas, with over 5,000 applications received and over 2,000 internship placements arranged, as of the winter 2016 round. For more information, see the Aurora Internship Program.
Since 2007 native title training programs have been available for all staff working at NTRBs. These were extended to include PBCs in 2010, with specialised program developed and delivered for PBCs from 2012. More recently, native title orientation workshops have also been delivered to organisations working in the corporate space. From June 2016 the T&PD work is on hold.
