Opportunities available for specialist and non-specialist community service organisations to receive funding to develop and transition students and new workers to family violence roles.

The Victorian Council on Social Services (VCOSS) is thrilled to announce the expansion of the Enhanced Pathways to Family Violence Work project, which assists specialist and non-specialist community service organisations to develop and transition students and new workers to family violence roles.

Expression of Interests (EOI), for up to 60 new organisations, will open on 8 May 2019 and close at 5pm on 22 May 2019.

Participating organisations will receive funding, training and other resources to:

  • Grow their student placements, creating a pipeline of future workers
  • Build the skills and confidence of emerging practice leaders to provide effective supervision to students and new workers
  • Create and foster a culture of workplace learning that sets up students and new workers for success
  • Orient students and new workers to family violence practice (in specialist and non-specialist settings).

Simply email VCOSS to receive an EOI pack link@vcoss.org.au

The Enhanced Pathways to Family Violence Work project is a flagship initiative of the Victorian Government’s 10-year plan for Victoria’s future family violence workforce.  The project is funded through Family Safety Victoria and managed by the Department of Health and Human Services.
