This event has passed Get Tickets

Event description

WorkUP Queensland and QCDFVR with input from the sector have developed this induction program Welcome to our Sector. It evolved from conversations across the state that identified a need for new workers to have an opportunity to connect with each other and increase their understanding of the purpose, practice and resources of this sector.

This induction package is for new workers to domestic and family violence, sexual assault and women’s health and wellbeing services. The 3-part series will allow you to locate yourself as a member of a workforce that is a powerful driver of change in ending violence against women.

It sets you up to succeed by supporting you to join the dots across a large and complex system, understanding the context and the principles that underpin your work. It equips you with the foundational knowledge and connections to get you started in your new career and supports you to identify next steps in your learning journey.

No prior knowledge is required to engage in this training. We do ask that you commit to attending all three sessions.

Learning Outcomes:

The program consists of the three 2 hour modules:

1. Our purpose

  • Recognise the gender-based nature of violence against women
