Professional Development

Thriving in non-Aboriginal TEI Workplaces©

This interactive eLearning course is for Aboriginal peoples who are working in non-Aboriginal workplaces in family and community support settings. This work can be challenging and sometimes exhausting, and when you are perhaps the only Aboriginal person in the organisation, another layer of complexities is added.

The course gives some practical suggestions on how Aboriginal workers can thrive in Non-Aboriginal workplaces.

Learning Outcomes

This self-paced (60 Minutes) eLearning Course will enable you to:

  • Understand the contributions of Aboriginal peoples in the workplace
  • Acknowledge your unique skill sets as an Aboriginal worker
  • Discuss the conditions to thrive for Aboriginal peoples in workplaces (include addressing work challenges, what makes up effective work relationships, cultural safety in the workplace)
  • Assess your professional self-care
  • Create your own professional self-care plan
  • Discuss what your workplace can do to enable you to thrive

Target Audience

The Target Audience for this course is all Aboriginal workers supporting vulnerable and at-risk Aboriginal children, families and communities, and who are employed by non-Aboriginal organisations. It is especially relevant for Aboriginal workers employed by non-Aboriginal Service Providers who are funded by the Department of Communities and Justice, under the Targeted Earlier Intervention (TEI) program.

LEad Many Countries, One Water by Chris Tobin
Artwork by Chris Tobin, commissioned by LEAD to create an original piece of art that reflects who we are and what we do. Titled “Many Countries, One Water”, the artwork represents the diversity and the connectedness across the communities in which we work. Reproduced with permission and gratitude.


LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
