This Certificate III course (10541NAT) is a nationally recognised training program owned by the Resource Network for Linguistic Diversity Inc. The Certificate III course is delivered by the RNLD under an agreement with our partner RTO the Australian Indigenous Leadership Centre (AILC).
This course provides a foundation in Aboriginal languages and linguistics. It develops knowledge of the Australian language family and the relationships between languages. It introduces core concepts in linguistics and methods to revitalise Aboriginal languages. Students apply their skills to their specific community or workplace context.
Graduates of this course will be able to support the development and implementation of language projects within existing community and workplace contexts.
Graduates will have factual and theoretical knowledge about Australian Indigenous languages, their history, vitality, distribution and relationship to each other; technical and practical knowledge about recording equipment and computer skills; procedural knowledge in project planning, communication and problem solving skills through units about public awareness and public relations.
This course is suitable for staff in Aboriginal language centres and Indigenous knowledge centres, the health industry, national parks, land councils, Aboriginal corporations, and tourism and hospitality as well as board members and community members who wish to learn more about Aboriginal languages to increase their own knowledge and sense of identity. It will assist people involved in front line services raising awareness and providing public information on Aboriginal languages and cultures.
