What is this course about?

The Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Education offers to extend the teaching abilities of the students, create opportunities for critical reflection on practice, and enhance the employment prospects of participants through an innovative use of fieldwork/placements, research and in-depth study in the Indigenous education discipline area.

The aim of the Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Education is to offer students enrolled in undergraduate teacher education programs, the opportunity to undertake a course of study which has a focus on using Indigenous studies. This course also offers existing teachers, particularly early-career teachers the opportunity to undertake further study to build their professional knowledge in the area of Indigenous education.

Graduates will be able to:

  • build cultural confidence by developing a greater understanding of Indigenous communities.
  • demonstrate appropriate teaching strategies based on the acquisition of knowledge in the area of Indigenous Studies.
  • reflect on their own practice in order to inform their professional lives and professional growth.

Professional recognition

This course enables additional study to be undertaken in a specific content area, but it is not a retraining program and therefore will not have independent accreditation sought with the NSW Institute of Teachers.
