Indigenous employment

La Trobe University's Closing the Gap, 35 in 5 Indigenous Employment Strategy 2010-2015 [PDF 1.8MB] was officially launched by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Paul Johnson on 29 September 2010 and commits the University to creating an additional 35 long term sustainable employment opportunities for Indigenous Australians.

Achieving  the goal of an additional 35 jobs for Indigenous Australians will include creating pathways through fulltime, continuing, part-time, contractual, special project, and seasonal jobs.

The Strategy supports the University’s long-term commitment to support sustainable employment opportunities and is part of the University’s support of the Federal Government's ‘Closing the Gap’ strategy which aims to reduce Indigenous Australian disadvantage in regards to life expectancy, child mortality, access to early childhood education, educational achievement and employment outcomes.
