Acknowledging And Celebrating First Nations of Australia: A Starting Point - 2 Part Webinar Series

Nesa Accredited PD

A guiding principle of the National Quality Framework (NQF) is that First Nations cultures are valued. But where do we begin, and how do we enable others to understand the importance of these rich and diverse cultures?

This workshop is designed to provide educators with a clearer understanding of how to to acknowledge and celebrate First Nations Peoples of Australia. We will explore how to deliver respectful experiences of Indigenous histories, cultures and languages, and who to engage with in order to embed authentic First Nations perspectives into your program.

This is a great workshop for those wanting to understand: Why services and individuals should acknowledge and celebrate First Nations Peoples of Australia, where and how to begin, and how to plan and deliver experiences for children that are also responsive to local Indigenous communities.

  • This session was previously known as "Acknowledging and Celebrating Aboriginal Australia". While we have updated the title, the content has not changed.
