This live webinar is the third 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 ‘Inclusive Policies’ and ‘Explore Current Affairs and Issues’ RAP Actions, it will look at processes that can be used to review policies to ensure they are inclusive of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and how to be aware of and effectively implement policies that refer specifically to improving educational outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It will also explore how to raise awareness of current affairs and issues that are of significance, especially to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, in respectful and age-appropriate ways with students, staff, and wider community, and how that can help to promote reconciliation in a whole scale sense.
