Shared Lives Victoria (Familiarisation training)
Wednesday July 31, 2019, 9:30 am - Thursday August 1, 2019, 4:30 pm
Shared Lives Familiarisation Training
These sessions are specifically for those staff who are already experienced in Shared Stories Shared Lives (SSSL). These sessions are one day familiarisation with the updated package – Shared Lives Victoria.
Those who have not completed SSSL training need to book into the three days’ extensive training which will be offered later in the year.
Shared Lives is a competency-based assessment package including tools and a clear framework for making assessments of foster care applicants based on evidence of their skills. It provides a systemic way to engage an applicant and share information with them, and guides the assessor to reach an informed decision about the applicant’s suitability for fostering.
It is MANDATORY for staff to attend training in Shared Lives Familiarisation training first. This provides perspective regarding the training experience of an applicant, and gives the context for staff that will go on to use Shared Lives to conduct assessments.
Lunch will be provided.
