Expressions of interest are now open for current and aspiring prevention of violence against women (PVAW) practitioners (in regional areas) to participate in the Domestic Violence Literacy Project.
What is the Domestic Violence Literacy Project?
The Domestic Violence Literacy project will train professionals from regional women’s community health and domestic violence services to deliver the family and domestic violence literacy training to generalist / mainstream services in their community. The training package that you will deliver includes modules on family and domestic violence foundations, preventing violence against women, and responding to disclosures.
How are successful applicants supported?
Successful applicants will receive face to face training in their local area (or have their flights and accommodation covered to a nearby area) as well as post-training support and resources. Participants will also have the opportunity to be linked in to the PVT Network (a community of practice for PVAW practitioners in WA).
What are the expectations of successful applicants?
Time-wise you will need to be able to commit to the following:
- Approximately 2 – 4 hours to get comfortable with presenting some of the training material on the day
- Approximately 6 hours training plus travel (which may be local or alternatively in another community)
- Any practice and preparation time you may need prior to delivering the training
- Approximately 30 minutes – 1 hour for a post-training support call
- Approximately 3 hours to deliver the training in your region within 2 months of receiving the training
- Approximately 2 hours a month to join the PVT community of practice (if you wish)
How are successful applicants chosen?
There are limited spaces available. Applicants will be chosen based on location, the participant’s commitment to delivering the training in their local area, whether the domestic violence literacy package can be linked in to other work the organisation is undertaking, the role of the applicant and whether it is likely for them to be able to deliver the training on an ongoing basis, and the experience of the applicant in delivering training or community education (although people who are interested in delivering training and haven’t necesarily done so before are encouraged to apply).
