Who is it for?
DV-alert Tailored Workshops may be requested by not-for-profit or community organisations that support individuals and families directly. One of the priorities of the National Plan to Reduce Violence Against Women and their Children is to ensure that services meet the needs of women and childrenexperiencing violence. DV-alert aims to build the knowledge and capacity of community frontline workers to provide appropriate support to women and children in Australia.
What will I learn?
Tailored workshops are provided to individual organisations that request training specifically for their staff (minimum of 15 people). Across the two-day workshop, your staff will learn how to recognise the signs of domestic and family violence, how to respond to someone experiencing domestic and family violence, and the best practice methods that should be used to refer people on to the most appropriate support service.
How will I be assessed?
To get a competent mark, you will be required to complete three assessment tasks successfully:
Participants marked competent will receive a Statement of Attainment for the unit of competency CHCDFV001A - Recognise and Respond Appropriately to Domestic and Family Violence apart from all the other benefits.
