IS THIS COURSE RIGHT FOR YOU?
This Wiradjuri language group course offering is designed for both Aboriginal people to learn about their Language and culture, and non-Aboriginal people to learn more about Aboriginal Languages and Aboriginal cultures either for personal reasons or as part of their work requirements. This can include staff within NSW AECG, early childhood education, Schools, and Universities, as well as from businesses and other Government agencies to provide an understanding and respect of Aboriginal people.
Participation is open to Aboriginal peoples who are of Aboriginal descent, identify as Aboriginal and are accepted as such by the local Aboriginal community. Participation by non-Aboriginal people is subject to local Aboriginal community approval.
Basic knowledge or skills are required for course entry, although it is strongly encouraged that the learner has completed 10703NAT Cert I in Fundamental Aboriginal Languages for Personal Use. However, students with a good basic knowledge of Aboriginal languages (specifically Gamilaraay) may be able to enter directly at the Cert II level.
Specific language group for the offering is Wiradjuri
