Training Director

RNLD is seeking a person to direct RNLD's Documenting and Revitalising Indigenous Languages (DRIL) Training Program and to support the revitalisation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages. Now in its ninth year, the DRIL Training Program currently covers three distinct strands which are delivered to Indigenous participants in communities and workplaces across Australia. RNLD's Flexible DRIL workshops, the nationally accredited Certificates II and III, and the Professional Development Program are highly regarded and have been very positively evaluated by the approximately 600 Indigenous people who have participated in our training.

The DRIL Director will

  • direct all strands of the training programs
  • contribute to the strategic development of new training initiatives
  • consult with Indigenous communities and organisations to identify training needs
  • prepare the annual training schedule
  • develop and deliver training workshops
  • train and mentor the DRIL training team
  • contribute to the development of training and assessment materials, and
  • continue to network nationally and internationally with Indigenous communities and organisations, and with linguists in universities and allied sectors.

The successful candidate will have a higher degree in linguistics (preferably a Masters or PhD with a specialisation in Australian languages), familiarity with all strands of the DRIL Training Program, and a commitment to working effectively in community contexts with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. An understanding of and experience with the VET sector is an advantage. The appointed candidate will be required to have attained the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment prior to commencing the role, or to complete it in out of work hours soon after appointment.

This part-time (0.8) position is based in our Melbourne (Carlton) office. The ability to travel to training sites across the country is essential. Only Australian residents will be considered for this position. Note that relocation costs will not be provided.
