SHARC Peer Worker Training

6 November 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12 November 2019 @ 5:00 pm


Peer workers, as in any professional discipline, need quality, standardised training and ongoing professional development. Through extensive research and co-design, SHARC has developed Peer Worker Training. This comprehensive training provides a vital knowledge base for peer workers, and ensures that the peer workforce has a discipline-specific framework.

This 5 day training is designed for current peer workers, emerging peer workers and consumers interested in participating in peer work.

Dates: 6th, 7th, 8th, 11th and 12th of November 2019

The SHARC Peer Worker Training seeks to:
• Educate peer workers around the concepts and core competencies of the peer work discipline
• Assist peer workers to apply best practice peer work in formalised settings
• Offer an Intentional Peer Support (IPS) lens to the peer work discipline
• Increase confidence and develop skills in communication and navigating relational parameters
• Develop understanding of ethical practice and workplace legislative requirements
• Empower peer workers to advocate for the discipline and manage their own wellbeing and development needs
• Prepare peer workers to work across a number of domains, remaining ‘peer’ within clinical governance frameworks

Cost: $1100 per person.
