Centralian Girls Academy graduate Taigan Satour started work at the Central Land Council, in Alice Springs, straight after finishing school.
“If it wasn’t for the help and support from Girls Academy I wouldn’t be in this job,” she said. “The staff at Girls Academy sat down and helped me with my resume and the selection criteria.”
She’s also grateful for the ongoing support Girls Academy provided after graduation, knowing she has somewhere to seek advice or simply have a yarn.
While Taigan was working in reception and administration, she was also learning a lot from the different sections of the council.
Central Land Council represents and provides services to Aboriginal traditional owners and residents of Central Australia.
Aboriginal people own more than 417,000 sqkm of inalienable freehold land across the southern half of the Northern Territory. The Central Land Council supports them with a range of services, including advocating on their behalf, assisting with economic development of their land, and protecting Aboriginal culture and sacred sites.
