The Healthy Culture Healthy Country (HCHC) Programme is a professional development framework created by Dr Shayne Williams of the Aboriginal Education Consultative Group (AECG) in the Australian state of New South Wales to provide professional development in Aboriginal culture and languages for practicing teachers. As the community advisory body to the New South Wales Department of Education on Aboriginal education and training, the AECG plays a pivotal role in leadership in this area. The HCHC Programme is designed to support teachers to plan culturally appropriate teaching practices drawing on curriculum-based local culture and knowledge. The Programme was modified byi ts author and trialed for the first time with pre-service teachers at a regional Australian university in 2015.
