Jobfind has been working closely with Renee Schoder, since the inception of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, back in 2015.
Pattern Creations has delivered educational workshops based around sewing and crafts throughout Queensland and Northern Territory. Some of these communities in which Pattern Creations have been engaged are: Gunbalanya; Minjilang; Kowanyama; Pormpuraaw and Katherine.
Jobfind has discovered that after engaging Pattern Creations in these Indigenous communities; engagement has increased, participants core knowledge and skills have improved, and the overall language, literacy and numeracy has increased.
Due to several successful workshops throughout the communities, Jobfind has approached Pattern Creations to deliver Community Development Programs for a longer period of time, with the ultimate aim to transition these activities that generate income into a small business, for the local community by June 2018.
