The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural competency workshops program

 

Overview

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural competency workshops program aims to improve the knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures. They aim to develop skills, values and critical reflection that will enable positive changes in professional practice and capacity building.

The workshops comprise of three stages:

  1. Pre-workshop - (Interactive Ochre) an interactive multi-media resource aimed towards grounding in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural awareness and sensitivity.

  2. Workshop - face-to-face session that exposes participants to ways of applying cultural competence in their professional practice.

  3. Post-workshop - participants submit and evaluate their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander collaborative action plans online and share their successes and engage in further critical reflection.

 The workshops are delivered by The Wollotuka Institute at the University of Newcastle in NSW.
