Indigenous cadetships providing ranger opportunities for students

Date posted: 13 December 2013

Indigenous students at Port Lincoln High School are participating in a program that could see them gain employment in land management after leaving school.

The ranger cadetship program, one of only eight in Australia, enables participating students to qualify for a certificate in land and conservation management. The program was recently granted a second round of funding.

The students participating in the program work with field officers from Natural Resources Eyre Peninsula, and try their hand at tree-planting, weed control and marine debris surveys.

Port Lincoln High School's assistant principal of Aboriginal projects, Todd George, says it's been great for the students in the program to get practical work experience that could help them secure jobs after leaving school.

'There is a lot of field trip work and a number of camps as well - it's about getting them out in the field and doing that practical work,' he said.
