RCLDS Training & Events

Free training and professional development to residential care workers in Victoria

RCLDS Training Requests

The purpose of these forms is to ensure that future RCLDS funded training is accessible, inclusive and based around the training needs of the Residential care workforce.

RCLDS Online Learning

Residential care workers are situated across the state and often have limited spare time to attend face-to-face training. The Centre’s online learning modules provide the perfect solution to this challenge.


Resi Rocks provides an annual opportunity to bring together residential care workers from across the state as a professional group to promote and cultivate a culture of learning and innovation, sharing knowledge, ides and practice excellence.

Residential Care Awards

The aim of these awards is to recognise, celebrate and encourage work of the highest standard in the provision of residential care provided in Victoria that contributes to positive outcomes for children and young people living in residential care.

Further Education Scholarships

The Residential Care Learning and Development Strategy, Further Education Scholarship offers financial support for the on-going higher education of people working in the residential care sector.
