The construction of a specialised training centre at the NTCA’s Roe Creek site, on the outskirts of Alice Springs, is set to become a valuable asset to community and industry following a $450,000 funding boost from the Australian Federal Governments Building Better Regions Fund.

The NTCA anticipates the training centre will be utilised to upskill a broad sector of the community, as it will be suited to rural and pastoral operations, shire council, mining and construction, community and correctional services programs, as well as school-based traineeship learning.  

It is expected that this project will produce local employment opportunities and promote best practice and safety in the workplace. In Central Australia there is a real need for a facility that caters to industry specific practical educational and training requirements and this need is currently not met by existing tertiary institutions in the region. Having access to such a facility that is easily accessible and well equipped will help to retain existing residents and youth and make the region more attractive to those looking to further their career and training.
