A leadership program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Teachers and Koorie Education Workers: #ourmobteach presentation by Catholic Education Victoria

Catholic Education Commission of Victoria logoThis presentation shares the journey of 13 Aboriginal teachers and 4 Koorie Education Workers from Catholic schools in Victoria who raised their hands to make new commitments to enhance their own confidence and skills to apply for leadership positions in their schools. They were introduced to leadership attributes from two perspectives, Aboriginal and Catholic and supported in this endeavour by Aboriginal community and Catholic leaders.
Their personal stories of disconnection from culture to current success reveals that their resilience and presence as Aboriginal people in education offers something to Australian society that is difficult to define, but invaluable to learning.
