Muru Mittigar is endorsed to provide NESA Registered Professional Development for teachers accredited at Proficient Teacher level.
The Professional development aims to arise and increase Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander cultural competencies within the education sector.
We believe to fulfil all professional roles in the education knowledge sector, educators need support, and guidance and assistance to further increase their knowledge and understand the values and sensitivity of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander culture, heritage, people and traditional lands.
Threaded throughout the cultural presentation and information, our aim is to raise a greater understanding and awareness of these values. In a culturally appropriate and safe training environment affords the opportunity for Teachers to share meaningful information respectfully and to take away effective strategies to share in their teaching practice.
We believe authentic and quality cultural awareness and understanding is fundamental to all key learning outcomes.
We are striving for excellence in teacher’s understanding of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander heritage, culture and spirituality using face-to-face presentation, panel discussion and culturally appropriate information and resource materials.
This course will cover the importance of identity and connection to Country/traditional lands; the impacts of colonisation and the changes to Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people, communities; land and environment.
