ONE of Victoria’s leading universi-
ties is bringing education to the out-
A group of 16 students from Tennant Creek
have begun studying a Diploma of Commu-
nity Services (Alcohol and Other Drugs and
Mental Health) with the Royal Melbourne
Institute of Technology (RMIT).
Just like Mohammed called the mountain
to him, lecturers from RMIT will run the
course in town.
Stewart Naylor from the Barkly Region
Alcohol and Drug Abuse Advisory Group
(BRADAAG) organised the training, hav-
ing been involved in the courses run from
RMIT’s Xenia Girdler, Coordinator of the
Alcohol and Other Drugs and Mental Health
programs has been travelling to the Northern
Territory with mental health and addiction
specialists for the past four years so now
the team has a greater understanding of the
realities of remote health work.
Stewart believes that understanding lies at
the heart of the teaching team’s involvement.
“And importantly, it supports the students’
success,” he said.
“The learning environment is where the
students live and work and RMIT brings
the teaching tools and expertise to create
thought-provoking, respectful, nurturing
learning and teaching to the workers’ space.”
After seeing the course work well in Kath-
erine, Stewart contacted Xenia to explore
the possibility of delivering the diploma in
Tennant Creek and late last month the course
kicked off with most of the students being
Stewart said while the work Xenia and her
team have been doing is about designing and
delivering relevant educational products, it
was also about building the capabilities of a
local, remote workforce; creating networks
and developing opportunities for people with
a range of educational levels.
“The development of these key areas
ensures graduates will have the skills to
operate effectively in the workplace, to
communicate sensitively and professionally
with clients and colleagues and to ensure
staff operate according to the values and
principles that lie at the heart of complex
community services work in this unique
environment,” he said.
“A successful outcome to this course means
training can continue here in Tennant Creek.
“There are plenty of work opportunities in
the Barkly to support RMIT’s continuation
“It would be good to think that other or-
ganisations might follow suit because the
community wants to be able to access qual-
ity training without having to leave town.”
Education to the outback
FOLLOWING last week’s announce-
ment that the gas pipeline would be
built from Tennant Creek to Alice
Springs, Deputy Chief Minister Willem
Westra Van Holthe conducted an in-
dustry briefing at Battery Hill last Fri-
Present at the North East Gas Interconnector
(NEGI) talk was successful tenderer, Jemena’s
General Manager Commercial and Business
Development, Dave Green who assured the
gathering that the project would directly benefit
Mr Westra Van Holthe said the pipeline was
one of six priority opportunities to build a Ter-
ritory economy that would be able to deliver
employment growth and better quality jobs over
the longer term.
“More than 900 people will be employed dur-
ing the construction period and around 60 new
contracts could be undertaken by Indigenous
businesses and organisations,” he said.
“Local content plans will see Barkly and
Mount Isa locals, particularly Indigenous
people, given preference in employment and
training opportunities and in the supply of goods
“The benefits of this project was recognised
quickly by the people of Tennant Creek and
soon after the pipeline concept was announced
late last year industry leaders in both Tennant
Creek and Mount Isa formed a cross-border
alliance,” Mr Westra Van Holthe said, making
special mention of the contribution of Jason
Newman and Mount Isa Mayor Tony McGrady.
“The decision to construct the pipeline from
Tennant to Mount Isa demonstrates that when
people work together in the pursuit of a common
vision, we can achieve great things.
“This project is an important milestone in the
history of this community and we are gaining
and important piece of nation-building infra-
Mr Westra Van Holthe said the pipeline was
just the beginning, with the Government having
commissioned a scoping study on a rail link
between Tennant Creek and Mount Isa.
“The scoping study is due to be received by
Government before the end of the year,” he said.
“So the future of Tennant Creek looks bright.”
