CORE Cultural Learning foundation course program.

In September 2016, PM&C rolled out the CORE Cultural Learning: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia Foundation Course to its staff. CORE was developed by AIATSIS in partnership with the Department of Social Services and the Department, to strengthen the cultural capability of Commonwealth employees. CORE is an innovative, interactive online course that is contributing to strengthening employee understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' cultures, history and society through learning activities and critical self-reflection. CORE is available to all staff and has been adopted by more than 40 Commonwealth agencies as a key cultural learning course.
