We examine protocols in our Professional Learning sessions for teachers, and welcome questions as they arise. We also recommend excellent work by our partner organisation Reconciliation Australia.
Relationships with local communities is important work for every school. NEO-Learning cannot instigate these connections, however we encourage schools to build and maintain communications and input from local communities. While we cannot research and make lasting relationships with all of our nations across Australia we always instigate a dialogue where teachers and students can share with pride what they know.
There is no single First Nations perspective, and we reinforce this in our work. We work with schools and teachers at a national level and believe our approach is relevant to all regions. We take great care to present information that acknowledges where your students are, at a local level. We strive to celebrate diversity, with confidence that our learning concepts have a ‘big idea’ approach.
We encourage all schools to seek advice from and report back to local communities and peak First Nations education consultative groups and education officers. If you would prefer a NEO-Learning educator to speak with representatives from these groups please send us a written request.
