As part of a project funded by the National Centre for Vocational Education and Research (NCVER) and the Desert Knowledge CRC (DKCRC), the "Growing the desert" research team have conducted a broad-ranging analysis of the role of formal and non-formal training opportunities that lead to employment and enterprise opportunities in the desert region of central Australia. In the third and final stage of the project, the team prepared four case studies of Indigenous training exemplars. The following case studies are presented in this Support Document: (1) The Murdi Paaki Healthy Housing Worker Program--Replicable Outcomes; (2) DESART--Building on Strengths: Arts Cultures, Futures; (3) Waltja Tjutangku Palyapayi: Organisational and Individual Journeys; and (4) Newmont Tanami Case Study. This document was produced by the authors based on their research for the report, "Growing the Desert: Educational Pathways for Remote Indigenous People" [ED499683], and is an added resource for further information. (Contains 1 table and 5 figures.) [This work has been produced with funding provided through the Australian Department of Education, Science and Training.]
