At Twinkl we are committed to providing high-quality and trusted resources. All of our resources are researched and checked for accuracy and we consult with experts on specialist topics to ensure quality.
We have historically consulted with Aboriginal Peoples in the production of our Aboriginal resources. However, we feel there is an opportunity and a responsibility to continue to improve in this regard and we are regularly reviewing our production process, with respect to established cultural protocols and supporting guidance. As part of our team, we now have an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Content Writer (a Yamatji woman born and raised in Noongar country) who also works in an advisory capacity and assists in writing, checking and approving resources according to our Twinkl Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples content guidelines, which are therefore endorsed as being authentic and culturally appropriate. Twinkl Australia acknowledges the traditional owners of country throughout Australia, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures, and to elders both past and present.
As part of our mission to help those who teach, we strive to create respectful resources that can be used by educators to engage students in reconciliation, respect and recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures. We understand that we do have a lot of resources on-site that relate to Aboriginal Peoples which is why we conduct audits of our resource collection to ensure that it is acceptable, up-to-date and culturally sensitive to use.
We welcome and encourage all feedback and engagement around any of our resources, including those related to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
