Celebrate NAIDOC Week 2020
NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each year, usually in July – however, due to COVID-19 it has been moved to 8-15 November this year. NAIDOC pays recognition to the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities but by Australians from all walks of life. The week provides a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
Wherever you are, you can take part in NAIDOC Week celebrations. Find out about NAIDOC Week activities in your area by contacting your Regional Office.
Every Australian has the right to access safe, effective, responsive and suitable health and community care, and support services. Cultural respect must be embedded into the design, delivery and evaluation of services to ensure equality of care, service delivery and/or support.
To support your practice in providing this level of care, the AGPAL and QIP Education and Training Team has created the Cultural Learning e-Learning module. This learning program aims to raise awareness and support clients to achieve a high level of cultural competence.
Cultural Learning Program Module One – Introduction to Cultural Competence
In this module, we look closely at cultural competence, what it looks like in practice, and how to develop it. The aim is to raise awareness and support our clients to achieve a high level of cultural competence when interacting with health and community organisations. In this module, we look closely at cultural competence, what it looks like in practice, and how to develop it.
AGPAL and QIP clients can access this module by logging in to their AGPAL accreditation hub and selecting ‘EDUCATION & RESOURCES’ from the top navigation bar.

We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional Owners of the lands. We wish to pay respect to their Elders – past, present and emerging – and acknowledge the important role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within our community.
