INTERCULTURAL TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT
Communicate more effectively with people from all cultural backgrounds
Build intercultural relationships based on mutual respect and equality
Improve organisational management and service delivery
culturalQ was created in response to the many enquiries MCCSA had received over the years about intercultural communication training. Enquirers were directed to existing providers including Robert Bean Intercultural. Responding to this emerging community need MCCSA decided to develop a training unit. After 40 years in this field, Robert Bean worked with MCCSA together in developing this new service, transferring his intellectual property and continuing the facilitators’ professional development and mentoring. Their excellent workshop results since then speak for themselves and Robert is still assisting with the growth of the service.
In support of our core aims of empowering individuals and supporting and strengthening community engagement and growth, MCCSA provides training and development services in cultural intelligence (CQ) and and cultural competence.
