What do I need to work in the family violence, sexual assault and primary prevention sectors?

A new mandatory minimum qualification policy now applies for people who enter the family violence sector as a specialist family violence practitioner from 1 July 2021.

This means that new family violence practitioners employing in a Victorian Government-funded organisation must either:

  • hold a Bachelor of Social Work or equivalent qualification
  • be working towards meeting the new mandatory minimum qualification policy requirement, via one of the available employment pathways.

Sexual assault, Men’s Behaviour Change and primary prevention roles sit outside of the scope of the Mandatory Minimum Qualifications. 

You can find out more about the Mandatory Minimum Qualifications and if they apply to you by visiting the webpage Mandatory minimum qualifications for specialist family violence practitioners.

You will learn and grow through the support of your colleagues, on-the-job training and best practice approaches.
