LEAD has been facilitating Aboriginal Cultural Awareness for several years to increase the understanding and appreciation of Aboriginal Culture.  

LEAD believes that it is now time to lift the bar. We should all be ‘aware’; we want to develop the Cultural Capacity of our sector to increase engagement levels and capacity in order to effectively support Aboriginal children and families.

This one day workshop will help you to develop the knowledge and understanding of what it means to be ‘Culturally Competent’ of both yourself and others, and increase your ability to work with people in culturally safe and competent ways. Suitable as an introduction or a refresher session.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Increased knowledge and understanding of the concepts of cultural awareness, competency and safety;
  • Increased confidence to engage and support people with diverse cultural values, beliefs and aspirations; and
  • Increased capacity to apply these concepts to your use of culturally safe practice.
