VERTO has a long history of providing programs to support Indigenous Australians. Our programs are designed in collaboration with both local Aboriginal communities and employers, enabling VERTO to ensure that our program is sensitive to cultural needs and linked to real employment opportunities that benefit the community.

New Careers for Aboriginal People (NCAP)
NCAP is a NSW Government funded program aimed at helping increase the participation of Aboriginal people in the labour market. VERTO helps by identifying, creating and supporting opportunities across training, education and employment.
Dedicated NCAP officers can support Aboriginal job seekers to set and achieve their employment goals with support across career planning, resume writing, job application assistance, interview techniques, and referrals to training and employment opportunities.
Our services also provide access to an Aboriginal Employment Advisor who is in touch with both local community needs as well as employers, business groups, apprenticeship services, training and job service providers to help connect Aboriginal people to opportunities.
NCAP services are available across the Mid-Western ranges, with services based in Bathurst and Orange but available across Cowra, Condobolin, Parkes, Forbes, and other districts when required.
