Upcoming Professional Development Training and Workshops: 2021
Upcoming Professional Development Sessions for 2021 will be updated below according to availability. You can also download the full PD Calendar for 2021 here (pdf download) to view both past and upcoming workshops.
Join us for an exciting, hands-on session on an approach to learning and development that incorporates STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics areas). This STEM workshop supports important life skills and provides an opportunity to engage in teamwork, creativity, critical thinking, communication, analysis and independent thought.
Learning through creativity and the arts in early childhood plays a critical role in children’s development. Our role is to provide children with the materials, inspiration and time to use art as a platform for learning. This session is designed to guide educators with creative educational experiences that they can implement that allows children to communicate their thinking and feelings in multiple ways.
Join us for a bus tour to the Recycling Discovery Hub to participate in a guided workshop and activities where we explore recycling in Canberra and the surrounding ACT region and discuss the broader topic of sustainability to lead to a healthier, resilient, and more sustainable environment and community. Participants will meet at Communities@Work Weston Creek and depart for the bus tour.
This two-day program, facilitated by Lifeline Canberra has been developed for people in virtually any role, who find themselves in situations where counselling or empathetic communication is required. The program provides participants with a range of tried and tested counselling skills that work to create effective communication and de-escalate clients who are in crisis.
National Regulation 84 requires educators to have an understanding of child protection law and an understanding of how to enact their obligations under this law. In this session, you will be updated on the regulatory and legal requirements around reporting suspected cases of child abuse and neglect in the ACT. We will explore the importance of ‘informed reporting’, what constitutes abuse and neglect, and gain awareness of a community approach to reporting abuse and neglect.
About our Professional Development Training Calendar
Several of our professional development training sessions are tailored to the Early Education and Care sector, meeting National Quality Standards and enabling educators to engage in best practice. A lot of our professional development training and workshops also cater to the broader community and can be useful for individuals from any industry, though our focus is primarily on training educators in the child care and early education sector.
Our methodology focuses on the individual, providing a variety of learning opportunities, inspiring participants to reach their full potential, utilising the extensive and contemporary experience of our team through the provision of effective teaching and learning strategies.
For our 2021 calendar, we are also offering a range of new and exciting professional development training and events. An exclusive new addition to our 2021 calendar will be pop-up professional development training workshops. These pop-up workshops will not be a part of the regular professional development calendar. VIP guests will get exclusive early access to book into the pop-up workshops, and enjoy other benefits (more information coming soon). SIGN UP TO BE A VIP TODAY BY CLICKING HERE.
