Workforce, Training and Building Capacity
Wunambal Gaambera Aboriginal Corporation is seeking to further develop the capacity of the Uunguu Rangers. There are currently 6 full-time Uunguu Rangers covering a vast area of country. There is a high number of Traditional Owners in our communities, particularly young people, who aspire to being a ranger. There is also a need to provide more training to rangers to develop the expertise needed. We want to train our people to take up employment and business opportunities in industries like fishing, tourism and oil and gas. Important workforce and training indicators are the number of Traditional Owners employed in ranger activities and the number of rangers completing key qualifications and competencies.
Rapid growth of our workforce is the communal priority. Our goal is for 100 Wunambal Gaambera working–age “breadwinners” to earn incomes, to sustain families to live on and enjoy their graa (country). Presently, Wunambal Gaambera workforce is 15 percent of that goal. Adopted business case studies focusing on Wunambal Gaambera adult learning, training, job placement and building small business skills will assist and guide the design of the next decade’s Healthy Country Plan, 2020-2030.
