Training helps connect students to country – TasTAFE

In 2016 Djuker Willis-Hart enrolled in the Certificate III in Guiding at TasTAFE to formalise the knowledge and skills he was accumulating through workshops, tour guiding and ceremonies that he was involved in for indigenous tourism.

He says the qualification has allowed him to assist community businesses and help grow the knowledge of the Tasmanian Aboriginal people about their culture. He is now an indigenous tour guide with wukalina walk, an Aboriginal owned and operated guided walk in North East Tasmania

He was Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year at the 2019 Tasmanian Training Awards.
