The importance of culturally aware and respectful practice 

All workers undertaking children's services work need foundation knowledge to inform their work with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander clients and co-workers and with clients and co-workers from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. This foundation must be provided and assessed as part of a holistic approach to delivery and assessment of this qualification. Specific guidelines for assessment of this aspect of competency are provided in the Assessment Guidelines for the Community Services Training Package.

Group A electives  - recommended for culturally aware and respectful practice 

The children's services workplace is regarded as having particular potential for engendering stronger and more respectful relationships between non-Aboriginal Australians and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Australians.

It is therefore highly recommended that the following unit of competency should be included in this qualification to address the needs of every children's services workplace :

CHCI C302A Support Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander families to participate in children's services

The unit:

  • Provides a basis for staff to support and promote respect for and awareness of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities where there are no Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander children attending or residing in the local area
  • Addresses the needs of staff who work specifically with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander children and families.

Where work involves a specific focus on Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander clients or communities, the following elective is recommended:
