Why attend cultural awareness training?

Our workshops are designed to up skill participants, and impart a deeper understanding, respect and appreciation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and peoples. Our objective is to help participants better understand how to engage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples effectively and appreciate the benefits of a culturally diverse workforce. The workshop is divided into five chapters: introduction, people, history, future and invitation.

The Aboriginal Cultural Awareness Workshops are designed with specific learning outcomes which can be customised to meet the needs of your organisation.
