Enhancing your cultural competency Workshop (NEWMARKET)

09:30:00 to 13:30:00
3rd Floor, 19 Morgan St, Newmarket, Auckland, New Zealand

Enhancing your cultural competency

This workshop will support teachers to extend the depth and authenticity of their bicultural practice. It will explore the implications of Te Tiriti o Waitangi not only in terms of teachers’ professional practice but also in terms of curriculum provision for all tamariki. Building on the foundations of Te Tiriti o Waitangi teachers will be supported to understand what culturally responsive practice, for all learners, looks like. The workshop will explore the ideas of cultural locatedness and unconscious bias and identify ways teachers might be encouraged to think critically about the curriculum provision in terms of cultural competence.

This workshop will support you to:

  • Examine your own cultural beliefs and values and to consider how these might impact on your teaching practice
  • Examine how your centre practices might unintentionally privilege some groups of learners
  • Share strategies to build your ability to work effectively with children of diverse cultural backgrounds in ways that reflect the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
