Course Details

This CPD training for teachers of all levels from early childhood to tertiary is designed to help educators develop cultural understanding, foster self-awareness regarding their personal biases and assumptions, and understand the importance of culturally competent teaching. Attendees will be provided practical tools for teaching and interacting in a way that encourages and uplifts learners of all backgrounds. 

An inclusive classroom is a foundation for quality learning. This course is ideal for teachers seeking to advance their personal cultural competence—or for senior leadership CPD, upskilling leaders who are involved in developing cultural awareness and inclusion in their school or institution. If you want to learn how to teach in a way that works for all learners, it is for you!

We take a practical perspective on the challenge of creating an inclusive and culturally aware environment. Find out how to boost your communication skills and interaction skills, address cultural differences, integrate culturally relevant content, collaborate with families and communities, and solve conflicts effectively.

Differing cultural perspectives and diversity of thought amongst learners is not an issue to be overcome but a rich resource to be embraced. The knowledge from this continuing professional development course is helpful and applicable in a wide range of situations. It is a fantastic tool to have in the belt of any teacher, enhancing pedagogy and content alike by providing a greater understanding of culture and the effects it may have on each learner.
