ANMF: Aboriginal Cultural & Community Awareness Course

As part of this mission, we offer two training courses: Aboriginal Cultural and Community Awareness and the First Nations Australians Community Development and Community Equity Online Course.

We have partnered with the Australian Nursing & Midwifery Federation to bring you this amazing course.

Learn about facts and inventions, about our sophisticated kinship systems, the amazing story of Maudie and Olive Kennedy, understand how policies impacted Aboriginal people and why Governments are committed to redressing the impact.

We have specifically designed a 3-hour course, all of which counts towards your continuing professional development (CPD) for all nurses and midwives in Australia, so you can be introduced to the complexity, sophistication of our community structures, cultural protocols, belief systems and values.

“The music in this overview video was composed and arranged by artist River Jamijinpa Loizou and honours our central Australian origins and symbolises our sophisticated, adaptable and complex nature and culture”.

Walya is a deeply authentic and personal account of how the poverty cycle drives Indigenous inequity – health and wellbeing, social, educational. Through the lens of his own family, Damien explains how this cycle needs to be clearly understood and addressed. Over decades of practice in the Northern Territory I have witnessed many healthcare workers come and go, and it appeared to me that most focused on the biomedical model and all to often missed the point – if you’re too poor to eat, you won’t value tablets to lower your cholesterol or treat your sugars. Walya is an very impressive articulation of the roots of this problem, a must for anyone wishing to embark on meaningful Indigenous health practice.

My name is Irene Sazdov and a very proud Nurrunga women from South Australia. I have worked in the Education and Employment sectors for over 15 years. I completed the Walya Productions Aboriginal Cultural and Community Awareness e-learning course to assess its suitability for non-Aboriginal staff. I found it to be the best online e-learning course. It has changed both my personal and work life in such a positive way that the underlying message I felt was so important it inspired me to offer to help promote this course. As an Aboriginal person I would have loved for this course to been available to me when I was at School. It conveyed in the most sensitive and concise way the unique challenges and circumstances faced by Aboriginal people in away that was inclusive of the non-Aboriginal Australian community. I strongly recommend and encourage everyone to undertake this course.

I personally found the course really great, particularly for people new to our line of work. It gives a really good overview of aspects of history, debunks a few myths etc. The content is well written and delivered in an engaging manner. I would recommend the course to anyone who wants to learn more about Aboriginal Culture. Community Awareness is the key to successful relationships and outcomes for our clients.

I highly recommend this is the course.... My family came to this land as settlers in the 1850's, and this course allows you to start thinking more about indigenous land management, importance of trade and village life that existed for many of the indigenous language nations.

This is a terrific and informative resources that covers a wide range of material in an easy to absorb format. Despite the often-distressing history of colonisation -included in the program - what shines through is the extraordinary resilience and generosity of Aboriginal people towards those who have caused them great harm. The program is both moving and hopeful.

Dr Jennifer Sinclair

I can’t recommend this course highly enough. I’ve learnt more and have a better appreciation of First Australians, culture, community and contemporary issues. If you are thinking of doing any cultural awareness course, I would highly recommend you consider doing this one.
