Yarn Up Tok Blo Yumi

Yarn Up Tok Blo Yumi is a cultural capability program that supports participants to reflect deeply on their practice and challenge their world views and assumptions.

It focusses on history, cultural safety, communication, relationships and partnerships. The program fosters a genuine appreciation for and understanding of the significance of local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, country, history and culture.

Our delivery of Yarn Up Tok Blo Yumi ensures an authentic learning experience as well as providing an opportunity to establish ongoing relationships. The success of the program lies in the conversational delivery approach and the structures that support people to have open and meaningful conversations and to continue to build their knowledge and understanding through engaging in reflective practice.

How is the program delivered?

The Yarn Up Tok Blo Yumi program is delivered over two-hour workshops with five topics to choose from. You can also obtain a nationally accredited statement of attainment for the unit of competency (CHCDIV002 - Promote Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander cultural safety) once you have attended all five workshops.

The following 2 hour workshops topics are available;

  • Building awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture
  • Reflecting an awareness of own and other cultural realities in work practice
  • Communicating effectively with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • Developing cultural safety in workplace and professional relationships
  • Working in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities

These elements all make up the unit of competence CHCDIV002 Promote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Safety, which can be credited in a range of Children’s Services qualifications.

Facilitator

Robert Ah Wing has a remarkable and extensive background in implementing Indigenous training education and employment, as well as  in-depth knowledge of developing and reviewing resources to complement teaching of Aboriginal history and culture. Part of his work has also been involved with mentoring and delivering professional development and supervision to Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander staff and community in Indigenous education, employment and training program and services.

Cultural inclusion and safety within Australia are on a very long journey. There is much work to be done with organisations who are seeking to begin those conversations. Robert views his current role as an Indigenous Workforce Consultant as a pathway to support a cultural shift towards a truly reconciled and progressive community.
