Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Course

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Course is designed to assist people in understanding the importance and advantages of Australian Indigenous cultural diversity.

The course explores themes central to understanding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture as it applies to the workplace. Each theme is brought to life through a series of bespoke Indigenous artworks created by leading artist Elizabeth Close from the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands in central Australia.
