Teachers’ Professional Development Muru Mittigar
Muru Mittigar is endorsed to provide NESA Registered Professional Development for teachers accredited at Proficient Teacher.
The Cultural Awareness course aims to develop cultural sensitivity within the education sector, before we can have sensitivity to Cultural issues we need to understand why we have sensitivity in some areas with Aboriginal people. Within the course we aim to raise the awareness of how these issues can be discussed and respectfully worked with.
Completing On Country Aboriginal Professional Learning will contribute up to 4 hours of NESA Registered PD addressing 1.4.2 and 2.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
1.4.2 | Proficient Teachers — Design and implement effective teaching strategies that are responsive to the local community and cultural setting, linguistic background and histories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.
2.4.2 | Proficient Teachers — Apply knowledge of the content and teaching strategies of the teaching area to develop engaging teaching activities.
We believe authentic and quality cultural awareness and understanding which is easily accessible by all teachers is fundamental to all early childhood and primary school key learning outcomes.
PL participants learn about past policies and practices and how they have affected our community in today’s society, and how this understanding can be applied in a positive and pro-active approach today and in the future.
We are striving for excellence in teacher’s understanding of Aboriginal culture, and provide valuable knowledge and resources for all students and all backgrounds.
