Benefits to Employers

Develop your employees

Through our industry leading training and development options. We recognise that leaders and managers have limited time to focus on developing their teams, so we have developed comprehensive, specialised social work training and development for organisations that employ social workers and frontline workers.

Hiring and retaining frontline staff is a crucial challenge for many organisations. Evidence shows that opportunities to learn and grow are the number one driver of excellent work culture and peak performance. Now more than ever, employees value the ability to grow within an organisation and are looking for these opportunities when selecting a workplace.

Inhouse & bespoke options

Workshops can be run in person as a one-day or half-day training. They can be ‘off the shelf’ or re-designed into a bespoke training program that works with you to tailor the program to your organisation’s needs.

This is a sample of what’s available in our public program. If you see anything else on our CPD & Events training catalogue that is of interest, please get in touch with us.
