Organistions working in remote communities have to prepare their employees as if they are working in another country.
They must liaise with the local elders to:
— provide information that respects the history, culture and language of the country.
— organise induction of new recruits by the local people.
— arrange for each recruit to have a local mentor.
They also have to:
— use and train local interpreters.
— get regular feed back from local staff and the community.
— ensure that at least one member of their staff has qualifications in English as an additional language.
— regularly coach local workers for their English TAFE courses.
