The Aboriginal Health Council of Western Australia, in conjunction with the team at ATSI ICT Aboriginal Corporation, have developed the BSB41021 – Certificate IV in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, Governance Training. This qualification reflects the role of individuals working as board members, contact officers and senior staff within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations. It also applies to public servants working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander boards of governance. In these roles, individuals bring a wide range of knowledge, skills and experience to the workplace with an acute awareness that they operate in two cultures. They have cultural obligations to their community as well as legal and financial obligations to the wider community, funding bodies, and legislation.
This is an exciting course that will build upon your skillset where you will engage with others in simulations of running a registered board, which you can then pass on to your organisation or community. The training is delivered over four one-week blocks via Microsoft Teams initially, with the intention of moving to face-to-face sessions. Attendance and participation is by group discussions, role plays, and activities, as well as engagement with podcasts and by completing activity workbooks.
