“I had heard that Belinda Kendall of Curijo Pty Ltd was a great presenter from her other clients. I was stoked when I found out that I got a chance to attend her Cultural Learning Journey Day 1 course. The interactive nature of this course enabled us participants to ask questions and this is important because it allowed us to learn more efficiently. Bel was articulate and gave us a clear, informative and honest presentation. She showed sensitivity when we cringed at some of the historical facts we learned; many of us not realising how bad it has been since invasion for Aboriginal people. We saw that although the Aboriginal people have it so tough, they are smart, resilient and have hope for the future. Having heard their story, we feel more confident that we can stand by them and support them in our own little ways, in their determination to change the marginalisation they experience. Kudos to Bel for a 'deadly' (as in awesome) course she presented today. I highly recommend this course to anyone requiring some background knowledge on Aboriginal culture”.
I attended the Cultural Learning Journey Training and Reconciliation Support and Planning courses run by Tina McGhie from Curijo. I benefited from the course personally but as a Team Leader I could see how the course could assist my team members. I later enlisted Curijo to deliver the same course to my team. After attending the course, my team and I are more confident in our community work. We have created a plan to engage with the community for the best outcomes of our students.
Our organisation is committed to promoting culturally inclusive and safe environments for our staff and clients and we were keen to strengthen our cultural learning journey through participation in cultural awareness training. Through discussions with Tina and Belinda from Curijo we developed a training delivery plan for the whole organisation to build our knowledge and capabilities to better understand and promote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural safety and engagement across our settings. This has worked really well for us! Tina and Belinda are excellent presenters who are very knowledgeable. The training content was informative, relevant and comprehensive and has been well received and valued by all staff. I can recommend Curijo as an organisation that works to a high standard, is well informed, completely reliable, flexible and responsive to client needs.
