Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to develop an understanding of the cultural and intellectual properties of one’s own cultural identity. The local cultural knowledge necessary to achieve competency in this unit may only be accessible to Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander peoples. This unit also reflects the fact that there is no single Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander culture.

It applies to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in areas of work that include arts practice and cultural tourism. They could be preparing for work or further learning to pursue a career in the visual or performing arts, or as a tour guide in local communities. This learning and work would be closely guided by appropriate members of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander communities.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
