ASRAC is looking for a full time Learning on Country (LoC) Coordinator based in Ramingining.
This is exciting opportunity to work with youth and indigenous land management in one of the most effective education programs for numeracy and literacy, cultural knowledge transfer, and real employment pathways.
Learning on Country (LoC)
LoC is a culturally relevant, school-based, Indigenous ranger-facilitated program, aimed at linking Australian curriculum subjects with field-based experiential learning and data collection.
LoC is a learning framework that utilises Indigenous land management and cultural activities as the classroom and context to deliver numeracy and literacy.
LoC facilitates the opportunity for students to learn on country with rangers, traditional owners and VET trainers as teachers.
This promotes a space for Indigenous ecological knowledge transfer and cultural activities. These activities are then linked into curriculum by teachers in the classroom.
The program targets Indigenous students, particularly those that are disengaged from school. LoC provides leadership opportunities, workplace skills and employment pathways for young Indigenous people.
