Vincent Thomas, one of our mature aged job seekers, has gained employment through the employer 1000 jobs incentive package that we facilitate here in the Pilbara. Vincent secured employment with Wangka Maya Language Centre as an Indigenous Heritage Officer.
Vincent is looking forward to further recording his own language. AAC staff member Genelle Smith is delighted to have been able to order Vincent a personal laptop through our Post Placement Support Service. Vincent will be able to utilise his new laptop within his new role.
Wangka Maya Language Centre works with the Pilbara Aboriginal language communities to produce dictionaries, grammars, storybooks, recordings and other resources to promote the preservation and use of the 31 languages of the Pilbara region.
