Find the latest news and information about MARAM non-accredited training for Quarter 4 2021-22.

Adults using family violence training

What training is being developed?

There will be 3 training packages developed on Identification, Intermediate and Comprehensive responsibilities to support prescribed MARAM workforces and their practitioners.

What has been achieved so far?

Swinburne University of Technology and consortium partners Uniting Vic/Tas and Boorndawan Willam Aboriginal Healing Service (BWAHS) have delivered training package 1 for non-accredited MARAM training for working with adults using family violence. FSV have worked through providing feedback on structure and content and FSV facilitated a pilot session of the half-day identification package to obtain user feedback. Feedback from the pilot session will be collated and utilised to finalise the identification training package.

What is planned next?

A further pilot session with workers who have identification responsibilities is planned on the identification module for late August 2022 with the identification module to be finalised shortly thereafter. The intermediate and comprehensive modules are likely to be subject to a pilot in October 2022.

FSV will release a Request for Tender in mid-August 2022 to secure a lead training provider. The lead training provider is intended to deliver comprehensive training to specialist workforces, and support training approved others to deliver identification and intermediate modules to their workforces. A public information session on the tender will be held in late August for interested parties.
