As part of the Northern Territory’s (NT) Closing the Gap implementation plan, the NT Government committed to sharing information on Closing the Gap and the shared responsibilities. To fulfil this commitment, the Office of Aboriginal Affairs have developed an online training module. LGANT encourages local government council staff to undertake the training.
The training module covers the history of Closing the Gap, the National Agreement, implementation of the National Agreement, including priority reforms and socio-economic targets, and the reporting and monitoring of the framework.
To access the online training module, go to MyLearning. Registration as a non-NTG employee is required.
The NT Government has developed training modules that explain Aboriginal Land, Native Title, Sacred Sights and Town Lands Native Title Policy. Fine these resources on the Office of Aboriginal Affairs website.

All elected members are required to complete professional development courses within 12 months of being elected on their responsibilities and good governance. The Local Government Unit of the Department of the Chief Minister and Cabinet has developed these courses, which you can find more about and access here.
