Indigenous Pre-Recruitment Course (IPRC)

The IPRC is an 8-week program that is designed to prepare Indigenous Australians (who have left school) for the ADF recruiting processes and for a rewarding career in the Navy, Army or Air Force.

The IPRC is delivered jointly by the Department of Defence with the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations and the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs. It is a Defence Specialised Pathways to Employment Program that directly supports the Government's agenda to close the gap in Indigenous employment outcomes. These courses are delivered with support from TAFE and local community groups.

Defence Indigenous Development Program (DIDP)

DIDP is provided through a partnership between the Department of Dfence, the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations and the Northern Territory's Department of Education and Training.

This whole-of-government approach aims to assist young Indigenous Australians to develop and encourage a pride and confidence in themselves, their skills and their culture utilising a military-structured approach to training. Through this training, participants develop skills in: money management, druge and alcohol awareness, health and nutrition, self-esteem and self-development, goal setting, teamwork, 4WD skills and licences and leadership.
