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.
