This live webinar is the fourth in a series designed to explore the 14 minimally required Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) Actions for schools and early learning services. Focussed specifically on the ‘Cultural Competence for Staff’ and ‘Staff Engagement with the RAP’ Actions, it will look at how to take action towards building your cultural competency journey, and strategies for engaging staff with the RAP. It will introduce participants to ideas for meaningfully engaging staff in building the cultural capability of your school or service, and in wider initiatives in your RAP journey. Participants will also hear from special guest Carly Jia, Senior Advisor - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education at the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL).
