Abstract The Safe Places Training Framework project, funded by the Northern Territory Department of Health and Community Services (NTDHCS,) is part of the implementation of the Federal intervention into remote NT Indigenous communities. This project seeks to address many of the issues relating to formal training and capacity development in partnership with government-initiated social and workforce development programmes. This paper highlights some of the project’s emerging outcomes and discusses insights into its effectiveness and potential as a model for training and professional development in remote Northern Territory Indigenous workplaces. The innovative approach to professional development and training focuses on Safe Places staff within remote organisations has three key areas; designing appropriate courses,establishing 'communities of practice' to support participation and developing relationships with government staff that develop positive and self sustaining learning experiences, networks and environments. This paper discusses issues related to the development and implementation of this approach and the role of VET delivery within the project.
