Regional Anangu Services Aboriginal Corporation (RASAC) is an Anangu Nation (Aboriginal) owned and governed, not-for-profit organisation delivering a range of services in the Aboriginal communities of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands, in the far Northwest of South Australia.
It covers some of the most remote and disadvantaged communities in Australia.
RASAC has developed innovative training and development pathways that empower local Anangu workers to engage in meaningful employment and training, for nationally accredited qualifications.
Training resources and delivery is culturally appropriate, with resources translated and narrated in local Pitjantjatjara language.
RASAC wants to share their success with other organisations to achieve the vision of the Anangu Board, to ‘Improve the quality of life for Anangu on the APY Lands and create opportunities to improve sustainable outcomes for Anangu.’
This new state-based award recognises organisations that deliver accredited and non-accredited training, and demonstrate outstanding commitment to students and employees, helping them overcome significant barriers or disadvantage, and successfully participate in VET.
