Covid19 Update

by NIAA RSASLearning -

Due to travel restrictions associated with COVID-19, the RSAS face-to-face training can no longer be delivered as planned. A revised approach has been developed to ensure RSAS workers continue to receive ongoing professional development. 

In collaboration with Corporate Culcha the National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA) has developed ten (10) training units for RSAS workers to help you undertake your role. Units can be completed in any order and we expect EVERY RSAS worker to complete ALL units as they become available. Two units are self-paced and online, the remaining units will need to be facilitated by a qualified trainer, at the cost of the RSAS provider. 

The existing ‘RSAS Induction Training’ self-paced units remain available and RSAS workers are required to complete these units first. 

If you have any questions about the RSAS training, please contact the school attendance mailbox at
