CPD Accredited Content
This training course is officially CPD-certified, giving attendees the opportunity to benefit from up to 6 hours of CPD-accredited content across the day.
Cultural competence is a complex framework, and there is often a tendency for systems and organisations to want a textbook solution, a quick fix, a recipe, or a “how to”, step-by-step approach. The complexity of achieving cultural competence does not allow for such an easy solution. Cultural competence is a developmental process that evolves over an extended period. This course supports organisations and practitioners to begin the journey of assessing their various levels of awareness, knowledge and skills along the cultural competence continuum. Attendees will increase their capability to value diversity, manage the dynamics of difference, and make the journey from cultural incapacity to cultural proficiency.
