Whilst we pride ourselves on our hands-on training, we have had to adjust most of our courses for study from home and remote learning during the COVID-19 restrictions. This means courses will be delivered using a range of methods including online learning, virtual classrooms, workbooks and direct contact with your teacher.
Given the government restrictions that are now in place to reduce the spread of coronavirus in Australia, we expect this new model of study will continue until the government makes changes to these restrictions.
The Course in Identifying and Responding to Family Violence Risk is an accredited training program designed to help community service workers provide an initial response to the family violence risk they encounter.
It is suited to workers who do not have family violence as the core function of the position, but encounter people who experience or use family violence through interactions in their role.
These professionals may encounter victim survivors (including children and young people) and perpetrators through their interactions with children, families and/or adults within their work at universal service organisations such as schools, early childhood, justice, community and health services, sport and recreation organisations and faith-based organisations.
You’ll learn to identify and respond to the risk of family violence and gain the key skills required for screening, risk assessment, risk management, information sharing and referral.
This course will equip you to provide an initial response to the family violence risk while working at schools, in early childhood centres, community and health services, sport and recreation organisations and faith-based organisations.
