There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


This subject incorporates the National Professional Standards for Teachers expectations that recognise that every Australian classroom is made up of many students who come from multiple and diverse linguistic, cultural, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds. These students' learning needs are important and may require alternative teaching programs that support their different learning needs.

Teachers have a vital role in determining the positive experiences students can have within the classroom and the learning outcomes students gain from actively participating within a culturally respectful learning environment. This subject aims to provide a snapshot of the issues that have influenced educational outcomes and promotes strategies that can support equitable participation and effective learning experiences for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.
