Indigenous cultural awareness training

Benefits

Indigenous cultural awareness training can help you to:

  • gain an understanding of the history of Indigenous people and the issues they face
  • develop your sensitivity to cultural differences
  • begin to appreciate the cultural diversity of Indigenous Australians
  • enhance your knowledge and skills necessary for effective communication
  • learn from the experiences of others and avoid costly mistakes
  • assists in building relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.

It is about becoming aware of cultural differences that exist, and not about becoming an expert. It's about recognising and appreciating differences and having an understanding of these and accepting them.

ANU online cultural awareness training is available through Pulse Online Learning
