Description
Summary:This report documents the context, approach and impacts of the project, ‘An interdisciplinary model and resources for culturally competent service-learning in Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations (ACCOs)’. The project presents a case study demonstrating the successes and challenges that arise when creating and sustaining partnerships between an Australian university and ACCOs. This project was developed in 2014, and funded in 2015, to contribute to and support the development of a culturally competent service-learning model, including the development of cultural competence resources to prepare students. A distinction was made between the running and development of the Service-Learning in Communities (SLIC) program, which was the responsibility of staff in the Office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Indigenous Strategy and Services (DVC ISS) portfolio at the University of Sydney, and this project, which focused on the model and resources of culturally competent service-learning. The project team worked closely with the SLIC team to support the development of the SLIC concept and model, and delivered cultural competence training, but were not involved in running the program.
