Belonging: Cultural competence and respect for Australia's First Peoples series

Cultural safety

Explore the mind-set, skills and actions involved with cultural competence and how to create a sense of Belonging for all people. This series of two workshops boosts confidence and motivation to respect and value our First Peoples' ways of knowing and being in every day curriculum decisions. Through learning about the events since Invasion, you will become motivated to take action to redress unfairness.

AUG 5: Develop your cultural competence
We share and discuss ways to:

  • support each child's family's cultural identities and demonstrate cultural competence in your interactions
  • celebrate diversity, role model inclusive practice and address prejudice
  • use the environment, resources and experiences to support children to respect cultural differences
  • deepen understanding of the events in Australian history and consider the impact for Australia's First Peoples
  • respect and value our First People's ways of knowing and being in every day curriculum decisions

Workshop facilitator: Andrea Isitt


SEP 2: Cultural safety and respect for Australia's 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. This workshop boosts confidence and motivation to create culturally safe and respectful environments for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples.

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
  • discuss understanding of general cultural factors: Invasion, spiritual beliefs, values and traditions, kinship and language groups; and, use this understanding to improve work practices
  • consider how to implement 'The eight ways of learning' for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people into a meaningful and respectful curriculum.

Workshop facilitators: Andrea Isitt & Goothala Doyle
