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 in their local communities to community leaders and mainstream services. The training package includes a variety of modules including responding to family and domestic violence, as well as preventing violence against women.
How are successful applicants supported?
Successful applicants will receive face to face training in their local area (or have their flights and accommodation covered) 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?
Participants who receive the training must commit to deliver the training in their local community no later than 2 months after undergoing the training.
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 community, 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.
