Cultural Competence for Students and Children

1166 schools and early learning services have added this Action to their RAP.

The development of everyday programs that provide children and students with opportunities to build their knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures can make curriculum decisions more meaningful and engaging. These opportunities will also help to reduce prejudice and increase respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

To respectfully include cultural responsiveness into everyday programs and practices, you must first learn concepts and principles through cultural competence training

Teaching students and children about culturally aware attitudes and behaviours more generally is an important step towards developing rich and responsive programming focused on engaging with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions more specifically.

Other ways to support cultural competence for students and children include:

  • training courses
  • film, art, and music 
  • cultural experiences led by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

You must create ongoing learning opportunities to support these cultural competence activities.
