Learning through Indigenous business: the role of vocational education and training in Indigenous enterprise and community development

Education Aboriginal Australians Indigenous enterprise development Economic development Australia

Kate Flamsteed and Barry Golding explore the ways in which Indigenous Australians are learning through enterprise and small business development. They reveal that this learning will be more effective if it takes into account that Indigenous experience differs by location, with remote areas offering a significant challenge.

The report argues that learning through Indigenous business is most effective where learning is tied to earning; the content is customised; it is carried out in parallel to real work; and is put into practice through employment in commercial business.
