Customised Training for Centre Groups

 

This is a full day workshop for individual teams wanting to review their Aboriginal programs and practices. The training is tailored based on information gathered from a pre-training survey.

This workshop can include:

  • Indigenous history in Australia, legislation and the impact on today's communities.
  • How to engage local Aboriginal communities.
  • Strategies to include and support Aboriginal families and children at your centre.
  • Practical examples of how to include Aboriginal perspectives into your services daily curriculum.

An Introduction to Aboriginal Australia
Duration: 3hrs

This workshop will provide participants with information regarding the traditional lifestyles of Aboriginal people and how this was changed forever by invasion, legislation and injustices that violated the human rights of Aboriginal people and their communities. These past acts of violence and cultural genocide have directly shaped and impacted the lives of Aboriginal people today and therefore affect our role, philosophy and practices as early childhood educators.There will be discussions provoked by examples from the media that prompt participants to discuss their values and attitudes. Participants will be guided to critically reflect on their own biases and how these have perhaps been shaped by negative stereotypes of Indigenous people.

This workshop will also include information on acknowledgement and welcome to country, who can identify as an Aboriginal person, the significance of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flag and the diversity of Aboriginal languages.

Max Number of Participants: 50


Embedding Aboriginal Perspectives
5hrs

We know we should but we don’t know how!” is a common statement made by many well-meaning educators in reference to Aboriginal programs. It is still a popular belief that Aboriginal culture should only be acknowledged and celebrated on particular calendar events and not included in the everyday curriculum.This workshop will highlight the importance of including Aboriginal perspectives into services programs and why it needs to be done EVERY DAY!

This is a practical hand’s on workshop that provides educators with multiple examples of experiences.

It will guide educators through Aboriginal programming step by step for infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers.
