Remote learning: Due to the current protective measures of social distancing, this session – initially scheduled to be delivered in Glen Waverley – will now be delivered online, via Zoom. You can continue to engage in professional development from the comfort of your home and/or service!

How will this work? Our remote sessions will be shorter than face-to-face delivery, with pre-reading/resources provided prior to the session, and individual support after the session to implement your learning in your context.

What you need: Our training will be delivered via Zoom. We recommend using a computer for this program however you can also access it via a mobile or tablet device. Once you have created a free account, you can join a meeting by downloading the Zoom application or visiting the Zoom website. Further instructions for using Zoom will be emailed to you on registration.
