RCLDS – Residential Care Learning and Development Strategy RCLDS Training and Workshops To view the training calendar click here and select the programs listed RCLDS. The Residential Care Learning and Development Strategy (RCLDS) aims to improve outcomes for children and young people living in residential care. RCLDS works to achieve this aim by providing free training to residential care workers in Victoria, funded by DHHS. RCLDS aims to provide high quality support and training, and to develop and maintain a skilled and stable residential care workforce. The Centre currently facilitates a number of different courses and workshops for resi workers, which are delivered in regional and metropolitan areas in an effort to reach as many workers as possible. Throughout 2017 we have run workshops on youth mental health, trauma informed practice, working with Aboriginal children and families, documentation, suicide intervention and sexual exploitation training – just to name a few. We will be expanding all our training offerings in 2018, so stay tuned for more information. If you manage or work in a residential care facility in Victoria and would like to learn more about available training or book a custom course for your staff, please get in touch with Raelene Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org RCLDS Online Learning In response to overwhelming demand, the Centre began offering online learning courses to residential care workers in 2017. We know it can be difficult to find the time and money to send resi workers to training, so we came up with a solution. Residential care workers can now sign up to our free eLearning courses and work at their own pace, when and where it suits them. Content is regularly updated, and we ensure that our courses are relevant and engaging in the sector’s dynamic reform environment.
