Supported Employment & Mentoring / VTEC

Yanaga Dhuga Path

Starting a new job can be overwhelming at the best of times, Waminda works in Partnership with Corporate Connexions to provide a supportive mentoring program for new employee’s that are onboarding with Waminda.

It provides our newest family members with a sense of comfort to know they have met someone within our growing organisation that can assist them whilst they are settling into their new work environments and finding their rhythm with their new working role.

VTEC mentoring program is open to eligible Indigenous job seekers who are joining our Waminda family and is individualised to the mentee needs during their first 6 months of employment.


Please self-isolate if you have any symptoms of COVID-19, including a sore throat, coughing or sneezing, or flu-like symptoms. Call our reception to make a telehealth appointment with one of our doctors.

New Mentees will be booked in with our mentor (face to face) once per month to have discussions around your working role, including

  • How you feel are doing in your new position;
  • What strengths you have within your new role;
  • What challenges or barriers you may be facing;
  • Where you can find the right support to assist you;

We can also refer the resume (with the approval of the applicant) onto our partners Corporate Connexions who will make contact with them regarding any positions available that are outside of Waminda.
