CCA commissioned an Engaging Indigenous Communities Guide for member organisations to support and build their capacities to engage with their indigenous communities and learners.
The Guide was developed by the Australian Indigenous Leadership Centre (AILC), shaped by input from CCA members, with funding from the NSW Government. CCA is workshopping the fundamentals underpinning the Guide and exploring its use.
Due to the developing Coronavirus, CCA has cancelled its planned workshop that was due to take place in Barraba NSW on 1 April. We will reschedule the workshop as soon as possible, possibly via an online mode if that is suitable.
The purpose of the workshop will be to:
- Increase participants knowledge and understanding of the issues that affect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities, past and present; and
- Provide information that will help participants communicate sensitively and effectively with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
The one-day workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to commence their cultural learning journey or build on the skills and knowledge that they already have.
