The need for embedding indigenous culture and perspectives in early childhood education will contribute to positive social change and improved educational outcomes for indigenous and non-indigenous students. C&K have recognised the need to continue to connect with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture and have employed respected Indigenous Cultural Awareness Consultant John Briggs to discuss what embedded culture looks like, feels like and sounds like. Through Professional Conversations, John Briggs will assist you to embed and support cultural awareness in your services and recognise the importance of our reconciliation journey.

This training will support participants to:

* Explore Australian History, Policy and Legislation targeted to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities since colonisation and its impact on communities today. Why we have Reconciliation Action Plans. (RAP)

* Examine Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, communities and peoples from a traditional and contemporary perspective.

* Identify actions moving forward to reconciliation and how can we contribute.


John Briggs:

John Briggs is highly skilled and knowledgeable in the area of Indigenous inclusion with more than 25 years’ experience. He has worked with the early years sector since 1992 delivering information and entertainment to staff and children through music and art, as an accomplished didgeridoo player. He is currently working with many large Early Learning Service providers and Educators delivering competency based modules to students exploring how to work effectively with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Communities, how to work with cultural diversity, and how to create cultural safety in the early years settings. This knowledge and experience, combined with his personable style of facilitation, which is respectful and non-confrontational, has earnt him a reputation as a leader in Indigenous consultation and advice. John’s aptitude and flair for creating culturally safe environments allows each client to unearth and challenge unconscious bias around the engagement and retention of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This approach has empowered many organisations from all sectors to develop and implement successful Reconciliation Action Plans, set Indigenous targets, and go on to achieve these well into the future.
