Training experience

TAFE SA's educational workgroup has been delivering training to Aboriginal individuals and communities since 1995. In 1995 an Aboriginal Ranger Program was delivered across South Australia in South Australian National Parks, with 10 participants in each location. This Aboriginal Land Management Curriculum Program was developed by TAFE SA to Certificate III level with ATSIC funding. The program transitioned in 2004 into the Conservation and Land Management (CLM) training package and has continued to be delivered to Aboriginal individuals and communities in rural, regional and remote locations.

Since 2008 TAFE SA has been delivering a large number of CLM/horticultural programs in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands (APY lands) in partnership with TAFE Lands, the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Land Management agency, South Australian Department of Natural Resources - Watarru, South Australian Department of Aboriginal Affairs - Strategic Food Gardens Program, and the Tjinytjara Wilurara NRM Board- the Kuka Kanyini Walalkara Project. In 2011 CLM training by TAFE SA Conservation Land Management, was extended to schools in the APY Lands at Fregon, Indulkana, Innaminka and Pipalyatjara.

Recent experience

TAFE SA has delivered cultural heritage management training to an Indigenous group within the last 12 months (valid at June 2013).
