There is no universal approach to Aboriginal programs in Education. Each team and educator enters this space having had unique relationships, experiences and opportunities which shape their confidence and capacity to connect with community and develop respectful programs with Aboriginal perspectives embedded.

Koori Curriculum Coaching is tailored mentoring for individual educators or teams wanting specific support to overcome challenges or guidance in delving deeper into Aboriginal programs.


Educators Who Can Benefit from Coaching with the Koori Curriculum:

  • Have already taken personal accountability and responsibility to source information, e.g. they have engaged in professional learning.
  • Are able to commit to and prioritise Aboriginal programs for a period of time to gain momentum and lay foundations.
  • Are open to feedback, unlearning and relearning. They acknowledge that not all conversations will be comfortable and not all roads are easy to travel down.
  • Are able to commit to and prioritise Aboriginal programs for a period of time to gain momentum and lay foundations.


What Can Be Covered in a KC Coaching Session?

  • Reconciliation Action Plan development. Mentoring sessions can be used to create a Reconciliation Action Plan from scratch and/or discuss specific actions.
  • Reconciliation Action Plan working group participation. It is recommended that RAP working groups have Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander representation on them. Koori Curriculum mentoring sessions can be used to have the Koori Curriculum guide and support your RAP working group.
  • The creation of a "Community Connections List".
  • Supporting relationships and connections between educators and their local Aboriginal community.
  • Support in the development of cultural learning plans for children.
  • Curriculum support and development.

Coaching sessions are delivered virtually and sold in packages that can be individually booked in as required. However, we do suggest that if sessions are intended to be used for RAP working groups that you pre book and lock in dates ASAP to ensure availability.

What Educators Say About Coaching with Jessica Staines:

"Jessica’s strong pedagogical based knowledge, engaging and practical means of delivery, friendliness, honest and brave ability to share and exceptional ability to listen without judgment, provoke with respect and enable collaboration through empowerment was refreshing and the ingredients necessary for change." - Marnie Omeragic, Director Concord West Rhodes Preschool

"The opportunities provided by Jess have also enabled me to participate in an online yarning circle to discover and share ideas of inclusive and progressive practice alongside other early childhood educators from around Australia. This really has been a new way of learning and sharing for me but has been the key to opening many doors!" - Heather Brady, Yarrawong Preschool and Early Education Centre

Thank you for sharing your knowledge and wisdom with us during our one on one training session. Our discussions together made me rethink my approach to the planning and documentation of children’s learning, particularly for Indigenous children." - Melissa Crawford, Yurauna Early Childhood Centre

"Honestly there were so many valuable ideas shared by Jessica that I'm very keen to implement in my service. I'm going to look back over my notes with my team to see how we can implement some of these ideas" - Lamisse Kazzi
