Indigenous Ranger Cadetship Pilot Program

 

Overview

The Indigenous Ranger Cadetship Pilot Program aimed to test approaches to the development and implementation of Indigenous Ranger Cadetship initiatives in regional and remote communities across Australia.

The program had a focus on assisting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people to complete school and build their capacity for further study, training, jobs and careers in land, sea and natural resource management. It aimed to engage students in culturally relevant school-based activities involving land, sea and natural resource management, heritage related activities and cultural studies. 

A total of 14 schools were selected to participate in the program.

This program was initially funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR), until it was moved to the portfolio of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.
