Learning & Development Strategy 2012 – 2013!

AIME is proud to offer a dynamic environment of learning and development for its staff. AIME is committed to building Australia’s future leaders – Indigenous and non-Indigenous – and providing an environment that brings all of these future leaders together to deliver the highest quality, most effective mentoring program available to Indigenous high school kids across our nation; so they can finish school at the same rate as every Australia child.

AIM E Learning & Developm ent K ey Program s – Touch-points – Initiatives 1.

AIME Staff Camps, AIME Quarterlies & Learning and Development Days 14 days where the whole team comes together in Sydney to touch base each quarter, to reflect, regroup and refine our skills and focus for the next stage. At the quarterly touch-points the AIME Team attends workshops run by some of Australia’s leading organizations including Google, Coca Cola, Telstra, Origin Energy, and Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders. Themes include: Leadership, Management, Communication, Team Synergy, Culture and many more.

2.

AIME Professional Mentoring and Leadership Program Our commitment to mentoring also extends to our staff who connect with their own Professional Mentor for 5-6 months of the year. It’s a chance for AIME to connect our staff with some of Australia’s current leaders, to grow and learn from their experience, and to then feed it back into our day-to-day work. The following, are an example of the calibre of people who have been involved as Professional Mentors with AIME: Chris Sarra (Executive Director, Stronger Smarter Institute), Adam Spencer (ABC Radio), Greg Hutchinson (Executive Partner, Bain & Company), Marion Potts (Artistic Director, Malthouse Theatre), Chris Boys (General Manager, Support Services Team, Social Ventures Australia), and many more.!

3.

Study and Development Leave Each AIME staff member will receive an extra 5 days of leave that can be directed towards the staff member’s development. It may mean that some staff choose to complete a course, others may wish to do some reading or writing, others may simply take the time to experience new perspectives through conferences or festivals. Staff simply apply for the extra leave, and then can use the pay for those 5 days of study and development leave and direct it towards something they want to do.

!4.

Cultural Leave Each staff member will also receive 3 days of cultural leave each year. Basically this was brought in to give all of our staff, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, the chance to build their connection with Indigenous Australia. For many of our Indigenous staff it's a chance to get back home, to learn language, or maybe even to go to another blackfella's country and learn from their experience. Then for our non-Indigenous staff, it's a chance to really build that connect point around what it means to be Australian, a chance to maybe volunteer for another Indigenous organisation, or head off with an Indigenous AIME staff member to their country, or attend festivals such as Garma. A strong connection to Indigenous Australia makes us all much richer in terms of our history, identity and sense of belonging as Australians
