CHC HEALTH TRAINING PACKAGE COMPANION VOLUME IMPLEMENTATION GUIDE 32 Included in the HLT07 Health Training Package were two units which focused on diversity and were included in the core of a number of qualifications, the units are: •HLTHIR404D Work effectively with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people •HLTHIR403C Work effectively with culturally diverse clients and co-workers As part of the review of the CHC08 Community Services and HLT07 Health Training Package components to meet the 2012 Standards for Training Packages, the two HLTHIR units identified above were reviewed and updated to CHCDIV001 Work with diverse people and CHCDIV002 Promote Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander cultural safety. Most qualifications will reflect these code changes however if RTOs are still delivering CHC Community Services Training Package qualifications with these units listed in the core, the units need to be contextualised to the relevant workplace, industry sector or community services setting of the candidate. Guidance for meeting the evidence required for these units: •contact your National and State peak bodies for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health for contact details of where relationships can be developed •contact your National and State peak bodies advocating for Australian’s culturally and linguistically diverse communities for contact details of where relationships can be developed. Examples of evidence: •learners develop and build a relationship with ‘School of the Air’ in Alice Springs to develop an educational support program/activity for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander children or develop a healthy eating program for before & after school care services •learners build a relationship with Aboriginal Community Controlled Health services to develop a health/education program for National Aboriginal and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) day promoting Community Health/Education •learners develop cultural awareness through involvement with mentoring programs that work with Aboriginal people to provide educational support.
