A unit outline and content for professional learning units to support teachers in meeting Focus Areas 1.4 and 2.4

The Australian Professional Standards for teachers require that all teachers will have demonstrable professional expertise in both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education and Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies. This document builds on research conducted in 2012 by Ma Rhea, Anderson and Atkinson that reported a significant need for improved provision of professional development for existing teachers. This document is intended as a guide to the development of professional development and learning options for all Australian teachers, Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous.
