Rekindling Indigenous Relationships Project at TAFE SA

May 06, 2014

On April 8, thirteen Indigenous TAFE SA Students completed Certificate II in Family Well Being at Pika Wiya, Port Augusta.

The course was provided by the Aboriginal Access Centre of TAFE SA as part of the Rekindling Indigenous Relationship Project, funded by the Federal Department of Social Services under their Indigenous Family Safety Program

The Family Wellbeing program was designed by Aboriginal people for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and is an education and counselling skills program focussed on relationship skills, coping with grief and loss and understanding the issues of family violence.

Shirley Prider, TAFE SA Family Wellbeing Lecturer and Project coordinator said the focus of the training was on ‘healing’.

“Many of the graduates have made changes in their lives to enhance their family relationships and improve their own general wellbeing,” said Shirley.

TAFE SA, as part of the Rekindling Indigenous Relationship Project, will now provide the Family Wellbeing ‘Facilitator Skillset’ to five of the students, this will enable these students to support the further dissemination of these skills within their communities.

For further enquiries please contact Shirley Prider on 08 85952654.
