Santa Teresa Community store has been named as a finalist in the prestigious GTNT (Group Training Northern Territory) 2018 Host Business of the Year.

The Store has been leading the way with outstanding results in nationally recognised training of Aboriginal Apprentices and Trainees. The business is a 100% Indigenous owned business with over 80% of the staff employed being Aboriginal.

Since December 2013 the store has had 11 staff members completed accredited training. For a small community store an outstanding achievement.

From store managers Racquel and Rob Monkley:

“We are firm supporters of apprenticeships and believe it is an investment in the future of our business to encourage our local Indigenous staff to obtain nationally recognised qualifications, allowing participants to earn while they learn.”
