This program will support human services workers to become inspiring leaders and will ensure the development of a responsive human service organisation into the future. This learning and assessment program acknowledges that leadership for practitioners in a human services environment is a critical ingredient for delivering high quality services.

Understanding that leadership is an attitude as well as a specific set of skills, developed through both formal learning and excellent work practice, this leadership training is designed to:

  • Build a high performance client service ethos
  • Increase staff capacity to make decisions
  • Ensure decisions and projects are implemented
  • Strengthen collaboration across hierarchical boundaries
  • Enable diverse work roles to have input into policy and practice developments

This program reflects the increasing demand for skills including problem solving, critical and strategic thinking and emotional intelligence and aims to develop and enhance leadership qualities within human services orientated organisational contexts.

At this level, workers have responsibility for planning and monitoring service delivery, recruitment and performance management of other paid or unpaid workers, managing risk and contributing to continuous improvement within the scope of their specific role. This may include management of a specific programs or project, or broader management of a community-based organisation, early childhood education service, not-for-profit organisation or community centre.

This program has an emphasis on learning through experience and developing leadership skills in real work contexts.
