Celebrating success in Yarrabah

A recent graduation ceremony held in Yarrabah, Far North Queensland, celebrated the first five Indigenous MEGT trainees to graduate from the Conservation and Land Management (CALM) Program run by the Traditional Owners of the Gunggandji Land and Sea Country.

Four of the trainees obtained a Certificate III CALM qualification, and one school-based trainee was awarded a Certificate II. He is now set to continue on to Certificate III in 2016 with the new intake of trainee Rangers.

Since late 2014, MEGT has provided recruitment and management services for the Government funded program which runs in conjunction with Gunggandji Rangers, the Working on Country Program, and The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority. The aim of the project is to provide nationally recognised qualifications for Indigenous trainees in the community, and a career path for future Rangers.

MEGT is proud of all the Yarrabah graduates, and we are looking forward to continuing to partner with the community in 2016.
