Community Development Program (CDP)

IOGTA is the sole CDP provider for the Indian Ocean Territories and assists with: 

  • application writing or updating resumes;  
  • improving interview skills;
  • utilising the job search website;
  • making contacts with employers / networking;
  • identifying employment barriers and training requirements; and
  • accessing fully funded vocational training.


The Community Development Program has a ‘jobs first’ approach that helps job seekers build the foundation skills they need to take up available jobs that support community development. The new program also ensures that people who are not working are actively participating in community activities and contributing to the community wellbeing.


The key features include:

  • ‘On the ground’ assistance from a single provider with a permanent presence in the Indian Ocean Territories.
  • Personalised support including access to skills development and training that meets job seekers needs and responds to job opportunities.
  • Funding activities that will help job seekers address obstacles and barriers that are preventing them from holding down a job, as well as to build the skills necessary for getting a job.


Contact IOGTA if you’re interested in registering for the CDP program or are an employer keen to assist in building stronger communities - community volunteers and young school leavers are especially encouraged to participate.
