Stepwise has both non-Indigenous and Indigenous associates. Indigenous and non-Indigenous trainers sometimes work together on projects if necessary. In general Stepwise's main business is delivering capacity-building programs to Indigenous people in Australia and overseas around cultural heritage issues. These capacity-building programs include various components of practical application, technical and management skills development and formal training, whether this is accredited or not.
As a Director of Stepwise Heritage and Tourism, Nicholas Hall has over 20 years experience delivering training to Indigenous people specifically around cultural heritage management. This has included training delivered for Aboriginal Affairs Victoria, the former Australian Heritage Commission, UNESCO, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, the Angkor World Heritage Area, ACT Parks and Conservation, the Indigenous Protected Areas Program, the Vanuatu Cultural Centre, the Central Land Council and many other Indigenous organisations. Stepwise is particularly experienced at delivering training using appropriate methods and styles, including on-site programs and hands-on technical skills for cultural site monitoring and maintenance. Their professional practice training approach is described in more detail on the Stepwise website at http://www.stepwise.net.au/services/training.php.
An area of specialty for Stepwise is training others in participatory practice through 'train-the trainer programs' and facilitator training as it applies to cultural heritage management and Indigenous tourism development utilising cultural and natural heritage assets.
Stepwise Heritage and Tourism has delivered cultural heritage management training to Indigenous groups within the last 12 months (valid at July 2013), including Aboriginal ranger groups, the Central Land Council, local heritage managers in Cambodia at the Angkor World Heritage Area, and local communities managing the Chief Roi Mata's Domain World Heritage Area in Vanuatu.
