Abuse of people with disabilities takes many forms (physical, sexual, emotional, financial, exploitation and neglect) and can occur in a range of different settings, from residential accommodation, to day programs, to the individual’s home.
The disability workforce is key to preventing and responding appropriately to abuse. The 22530VIC Course in Identifying, Reporting and Preventing Abuse and/or Grooming of People with Disabilities has been designed to address the recognition, prevention and reporting of abuse. This course includes content in relation to understanding the human rights of people with disability, and empowering people with disability to assert their rights and self-advocate.
The target audience for this course are those who work with people with disabilities, including psychosocial disability, and have a responsibility to identify and report abuse.
This course is appropriate for delivery to both the current workforce and to students enrolled in relevant VET qualifications (e.g. Individual Support, Disability, Community Services, Mental Health, Allied Health Assistance, etc).
Pines Learning provides quality training in a supportive learning environment with modern facilities and small class sizes. All training is delivered by experienced and qualified trainers who are passionate about the industry.
