Staff training

Our programs help staff to develop cultural competency, gain an understanding of Australian history, the gap of indigenous disadvantage and the reasons it exists, and empower them to make changes towards reconciliation. Our staff training packages start with a site visit to gain an understanding of your business. We then create a staff training session designed specifically for your business.

Our staff training packages are run by Shawn Andrews, highly commended public speaker and educator. Shawn has presented at national and international conferences of Indigenous business, and delivered speeches to crowds of 2000+ people on multiple occasions. Shawn is a descendant of the Mununjali people of South East Queensland and the Palawa people of Tasmania. Shawns’ calm, respectful way of approaching and having difficult conversations has gained him the nickname of ‘the velvet sledgehammer’.

Staff training sessions are often run in small workshop groups from 15-20 people. If you are interested in engaging Indigicate to provide your cultural competency training please contact us using the link below.

What We Do

Our Philosophy

Indigicate’s philosophy is to design tailored cultural training packages that educate staff and enable businesses to walk with Indigenous communities on the path to reconciliation. We want people who experience our training to understand our shared history and feel empowered in what they can do to work towards reconciliation.

R.A.P. development

Developing a Reconciliation Action Plan (R.A.P.) is a great way for your company to demonstrate its commitment to reconciliation. Unfortunately many companies R.A.P.’s are either too large, lack tangible step to allow for implementation or at worse are tokenistic.

Indigicate have worked with many companies to develop their Reconciliation Action Plan. Our staff can help you to develop a R.A.P. that is relevant to your company, practical in its implementation and will have meaningful impact on your path to reconciliation.

Training tailored to your company

Our staff training is designing to meet the requirements and expectations of your company. We tailor our training session by arranging a site visit prior to the staff training session where we learn about your company and what you wish to achieve from your training.

We are committed to helping companies become active ambassadors of change. We only work with companies that are ready to commit to improving the lives of Indigenous Australians.

Training duration

The duration of our training ranges depending on the requirements of your business. Our shortest session is a half day (4 hours) session which includes a brief history from an indigenous perspective, an open question and answer session with an Indigenous person, and a brainstorming session on steps the participants can take to help the business on there journey towards reconciliation. For information on our longer training sessions, or how we can help your business please contact us using the link below.

Our Capcity

Our training session are predominately run in small groups of between 15 – 20 people. From our experience this is the best group size to allow all participants to have there voices heard while also allowing our presenters to connect with each participant.
