About Your Mob Learning

Your Mob Learning is an all-in-one online knowledge platform for effective engagement with Indigenous Australians.

YOUR MOB Indigenous Consulting was born in 2013; over this period of time it was identified that most organisations in Australia were not culturally aware. They all had common barriers that they were working through (time, money, limited resources) and did not know who to approach to help them with their cultural awareness problems. Briefly after, YOUR MOB's face-to-face cultural awareness courses were put onto an online platform called - YOUR MOB LEARNING
