Workers delivering community care services complete certified training in family violence and review the existing Community Services Training Package course

Recommendation 154

Implemented

Who is leading the change

Department of Education

The Victorian Government, through the Council of Australian Governments, will encourage the Commonwealth Government to:

  • ensure that the Human Resource Management Standard in the Community Care Common Standards Guide specifies that workers delivering services must have successfully completed certified training in identifying family violence and responding to it
  • review the existing Community Services Training Package courses relevant to providing ageing support to ensure that each course has a core, rather than elective, unit that adequately covers all manifestations of family violence
