Steps to Reconciliation

Teachers have a professional responsibility under AITSL standard 2.4.2 to promote Reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. As teachers we have a unique opportunity to advance Reconciliation in what we teach and how we teach about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures in the lead up to the Voice referendum. In this session the presenter will provide background on the history that has led us to the Uluru Statement and the referendum on a Voice to Parliament. The presenter will explore the issues and outline the teaching resources available for the classroom. For teachers in NSW, completing Steps to Reconciliation will contribute 2 hours of NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Accredited PD in the priority area of Aboriginal education and supporting Aboriginal students/children addressing standard descriptor 2.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.

  • 2.4.2 Understand and respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to promote reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians
