2024 Professional Development Calendar

Our professional development workshops have been designed for a range of sectors to support workers in responding to the changing needs of families and communities. These courses are informed by our practice-research and have a strong focus on practical application.

New training offerings are added throughout the year. Subscribe to Bouverie Connect to be notified when new workshops are scheduled.

Workshops

Live interactive training session facilitated by a subject-matter expert (or experts), involving presentation of content, group discussion and small group or pair work activities. Workshops range from a half-day to four days in length and may be delivered either in person or online via live streaming, with the same content presented in each case.

You can also register your Expression of Interest for any of our workshops to be notified of new workshop dates.

The workshop is delivered face-to-face at The Bouverie Centre in Brunswick, Melbourne. An online platform is used to access pre- and post-learning questionnaires, along with presentation slides, resources, and certificate of completion.

The workshop is delivered live over the internet using the Zoom software platform. The facilitator/s deliver the workshop in real-time and the content is not recorded or stored. The immediacy of live video and audio means the virtual training room is interactive. Participants require a webcam and microphone in order to connect with the facilitators and other participants. An online platform is used to access pre- and post-learning questionnaires, along with presentation slides, resources, and certificate of completion.
