Funded Training Programs
Members are encouraged to identify training programs that meet their individual needs. Training is not just restricted to entry level participants, but for members who would like to upskill themselves or secure a license. Members who are interested in participating in any training should contact the Corporation for further assistance.
Direct Employment Through Community Initiatives
The Corporation recognises that not all members want to work on a Mine site, hence, we have invested in a Healthy Country Program, which will involve the creation on a Ranger program. This will allow for the transfer of Traditional Cultural knowledge from our Elders to the future generations. The Ranger program will be open to both women and men and will involve a structured program designed by our Elders to care for our country. The board continues to seek partners who will be interested in supporting this program as the outcomes achieved will be measurable and deliver benefits to the wider community.
Direct Employment with Mine Owner and Contractors
Aside from the casual heritage work that is undertaken by our members through the Corporation for the various Miners, it is important that we continue to seek opportunities on our Native Title lands. With 7 mines operating on Eastern Guruma country, it continues to be a challenge to find suitable permanent employment for our members! In 2015, 3 members were offered permanent positions with Rio Tinto. The board recognises this as a start and will continue to seek opportunities for our members, where they exist.
