Abstract: Indigenous peoples’ participation in vocational education and training (VET) is explored, along with employability outcomes. Cultural aspects are discussed conveying the challenges in merging societal and Indigenous norms in order to more effectively engage learners. This is determined by acknowledging complexities, formulating a critical evaluation of learning strategies, reflecting, reviewing and amending curriculum to include Indigenous Standpoint Theory, and Indigenous Standpoint Pedagogy in the delivery of VET. A case study is presented to highlight challenges, pedagogical practices, within the context of William Angliss Institute’s implementation of training programs to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Traineeships resulting in qualifications and employment are achieved at Australia’s most iconic remote tourist destination Uluru, in partnership with Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia, the management group for Ayers Rock Resort.
