Partners in Enhancing Aboriginal Learning Pathways
A Companion Guide to “Engaging with Aboriginal Learners in ICT” Resource Kit
Developed by Yarnteen Creative Enterprises (YCE) in conjunction with Hunter Community College (HCC)
The aim of this resource kit is to assist trainers in optimising training outcomes when engaging with Aboriginal learners.
It is a Companion Guide to the experiences of our trainers utilizing the Yarnteen “Engaging with Aboriginal Learners in Information Communication and Technology” Resource Kit in their delivery strategies of a joint initiative program between YCE and HCC.
The guide was developed around 5 very important values:
· Valuing Cultural Contribution
· Both Ways Together
· Building Strong Connections
· Join in the learning experience and finally
· Support and sustainability
These five values are based on one fundamental principle: Providing Identity through Culture.
In order for anyone to gain the best out of education, their mind, body and spirit must first be well. Personal identity is at the core of well-being. Together HCC and YCE found it necessary to firstly, empower the learners through culture and identity and then secondly, transition into the vocational components of the training.
