When it comes to cultural awareness training, there isn’t necessarily a one-size-fits-all solution for education, reconciliation and Allyship training. That’s why we offer different training courses and programs to suit any team’s size or style and let you choose the cultural competency training that is the best fit for your business.

The great thing is that regardless of the program training format, duration, or delivery method, the content, information and benefits remain the same –  it’s just a matter of how deep you wish to go with your cultural awareness development and how much you want to improve your cultural competence.

The ‘7 Steps’ (for short) is our tried-and-tested training framework that takes teams like yours through the seven key components of promoting Reconciliation and Allyship with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and offers them a new and inspiring perspective to absorb.

Our cultural competence training is simple, engaging, and interactive – and delivers practical skills to help your team engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities with confidence and nuance. Cultural capability training will also help your team understand the heritage, history and community obligations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and learn how to support them.

Not only will your staff come away more culturally aware, they’ll also experience a greater sense of belonging and cultural safety and ultimately you’ll create a more inclusive and productive workplace for all individuals!
