2 part NESA Coaching Program
Indigenous Cultural Awareness

Extensive cultural knowledge is not necessary in order to become culturally aware. A capacity to recognise that cultural difference exist, and to be open to learning from these differences is the bases of cultural awareness.
This Coaching Program is designed to expand thinking and understanding about the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, its history and contemporary issues; and to facilitate understanding between staff and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
