Develop a deep understanding of how to identify, prevent and empower people with disabilities to assert their rights and respond appropriately to abuse

Working in the disability sector has never been so important. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has changed the way people with disabilities are supported. This course provides participants with the skills and knowledge to apply a human rights based approach to all aspects of work, including identifying indicators and signs of abuse and/or grooming. Participants will also be able to contribute to increasing the protective factors of the service user and their family, as well as empower the service user and their family to disclose and report abuse. Other skills covered are to identify immediate risks and respond to disclosed, identified or suspected abuse.
This course is targeted to those who work with people with disabilities, including psychosocial disability, and have a responsibility to identify and report abuse.

The program has been designed to utilise three learning environments to provide for a blended learning experience designed to support delivery through:

Blended delivery with self-paced e-learning resources
1 x 3 hour face-to-face workshop
Existing workplace experience

Students complete on campus face to face class, supported by independent learning.
