We work together respectfully, by listening and learning, to collaboratively create educational resources for all Australians, to increase awareness and understanding of our shared history, its ongoing impact, and help pave the way for meaningful actions.
We focus on teachers. They impact the learning and perspectives of the next generation. Our resources are created by applying the Australians Together Learning Framework and are developed alongside First Nations educators to ensure they’re authentic and transformative.
We provide:

  • a vast array of educational resources to expand teacher knowledge, build confidence and help shift teaching practice
