Cultural competence and promoting cultural safety for our First peoples

FD 3 33

Series of 2 workshops on JUL 4 and AUG 8: at 9am - 2pm

These two workshops explore the mind-set, skills and actions involved in developing cultural competence and how to create a sense of Belonging for all people. This series boosts confidence and motivation to acknowledge and value our First Peoples' ways of knowing and being in every day curriculum decisions.

You will be guided on how to promote greater understanding of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander ways of 'knowing and being' in every day practice and in curriculum decisions. Through learning about the events since Invasion, you will become motivated to take action to redress unfairness. This is an opportunity to reflect on the current level of cultural safety in your own workplace and consider ways to create a welcoming and culturally safe environment.

JUL 4: Cultural competence

This workshop will get you thinking about your own cultural identity and perspectives, and how these values influence your thinking and actions. You will leave inspired to support each child and their family's individual cultural identities, and to extend your cultural understanding with children and your team. We share and discuss ways to:

  • support each child's family's cultural identities
  • demonstate cultural competence in your practice and interactions
  • celebrate diversity, role model inclusive practice and address prejudice
  • use the environment, resources and experiences to support children to respect cultural diversity

AUG 8: Cultural safety for our First Peoples

In our fear of 'getting it wrong' or offending our First Peoples and their cultural ways, it is easy for educators to become trapped in avoidance. You will engage in experiences to:

  • identify cultural safety issues in your centre and consider ways to create a welcoming and culturally safe environment
  • discuss strategies for improved cultural safety using resources, communication techniques and work practices to promote partnerships
  • learn meaningful ways of demonstrating respect in your every day curriculum for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people

Workshop facilitators: Andrea Isitt & Guthala Doyle (Danny)
