The Migrant Resource Centre offers comprehensive Cross Cultural Awareness Training (CCAT) relevant to government and non-government organisations who wish to provide a more sensitive and effective service to our culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) communities.
The workshops are facilitated by a mixture of workers from different programs to leverage their individual experience and expertise.
We provide regular generic sessions that cover all components of our package including:
- Diversity of the Australian and Tasmanian population;
- Migration history;
- Language and communication;
- Cultural diversity;
- Migration and Settlement;
- Issues to do with effects of torture and trauma; and
- Local resources.
The MRC also provides tailored workshops. In the last year amongst others we provided CCAT to the following organisations:
- DHHS Diversity officers;
- Steps, Campbell Page;
- Glenorchy City Council;
- Ashley Youth Detention Centre;
- Ambulance Services;
- General Practice North-West.
If you have a group of people requiring this training our staff can come to your place of work, alternatively we hold numerous workshops throughout the year which individuals can attend. Training can be designed to suit your particular needs and we will meet with you to design a specific program.
The program is provided by people who work in the area of migrant services and have direct experience and awareness of current issues in the provision of settlement to people from non-English speaking backgrounds.
