Community Training Program

The Knox City Council Community Training is a series of free workshops presented over the year for individuals, community groups, clubs and not-for profit organisations in Knox who provide activities, programs and services in Knox.

If you are a volunteer, work for a not-for-profit community group or are interested in starting or joining a group, such as a local club or committee this program will be suitable for you.

The workshops provide opportunities for individuals and volunteers of local not-for profit community groups to build their capacity and develop new skills, as well as meet and network with other community groups throughout Knox.

Until further notice, workshops will be held online via Zoom. When you register for a workshop you will receive instructions, closer to the date, to participate online.

Cultural Sensitivity Training - 2 Sessions

We are Knox CulturalDiversity

Facilitator: Migrant Information Centre

Two complementary sessions are being offered. We encourage you to attend both sessions to gain the full benefit. The first is an introductory session ‘Understanding Culture and Diversity’. The second session is ‘Cultural Awareness in Practice’ which builds on the first session.

Knox is a diverse community and understanding the values and cultures of other people is key to an inclusive, safe and healthy municipality. Increasing our awareness of what other people value allows us to develop clubs, services and groups that are responsive to everyone’s needs and ultimately increase participation and membership!

Learning outcomes include:

  • Increase awareness of different cultures and communication practices
  • Learn about the challenges and barriers for culturally diverse community members to join services, groups and clubs
