Do you know what to look for in an Indigenous Awareness training program?
We found an independent checklist* and put ourselves and ourWorking Effectively with Indigenous Peoples®training to the test!
We are proud to say that we exceed all areas outlined on the checklist. Take a look:

1. A program that includes a needs assessment

We discuss the client’s needs for the training from the first inquiry. We look to ensure that your goals are met for each training session. If requested we can take a formal needs assessment of the anticipated participants to gain insight into their expectations and questions before the training session.

2.一个经过精心研究,基于事实的计划

Our book,Working Effectively with Indigenous Peoples®is in its 4th edition. In addition to our training, the book has been used by post-secondary institutions for their courses.

3. A program that deals with contemporary Indigenous issues such as economics, education, social conditions, treaties, taxation, self-government, and land claims

We feel that it is important for participants in our training to understand the historical and legal importance of Indigenous Peoples in Canada to fully understand the contemporary Indigenous issues that affect Canadians, Indigenous and non-Indigenous. We provide honest and straightforward answers to questions about whether Indigenous people living on reserves getfree housing或者免费后教育. Whether Indigenous people payin Canada. Whether there is a connection between Indigenous unemployment and Indigenous health and social problems.

7. A program that does not evade difficult issues - such as racism - but addresses them in a non-threatening way.

It is important when training to address difficult issues, such as racism, in a non-threatening way. From our experience racism flows from an ignorance of the facts. Once provided with rational, fact-based information participants are able to understand the history of a difficult issue and see solutions in a different manner.

"Workshop leader knowledgeable, sets excellent pace and his presentation style is calming and enjoyable, assisting understanding of material."

8.去od resource materials that can be used in the session and then as reference tools.

As mentioned earlier, our best-selling book,Working Effectively with Indigenous Peoples®, is presently in its 4th edition. Every participant at our training receives a copy to use as a continued reference.

9. A conducive facility, ideally a location that augments participants' understanding of Indigenous Peoples and issues.

We have found that by providing the training in the client’s preferred location participants can feel more comfortable as they are within their own environment. If it is preferred we can arrange for analternate facility either in a neutral, central, or Indigenous community location.

10. Positive evaluations and references from previous participants.

在每个培训课程结束时,我们为参与者提供亚博足彩投注网评估,以给我们他们的意见。上面发布的报价是我们从评估中收到的评论的示例。您可以看到收到的评论类型以及我们通过检查我们的培训的客户testimonialspage.
