Summary: Peer workers, like 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 to assist them in working within formalised and clinical settings.

Audience:
This training is designed for current peer workers, emerging peer workers, volunteer peer workers and those with lived/living experience interested in participating in peer work.

Outline:

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
  • Explore the key components of the role with a focus on the peer relationship
  • Increase confidence and develop skills in communication and navigating relational parameters
  • Develop understandings 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:

$1291.00 + GST per person or concession price $663.00 + GST (must provide valid concession card)

Please note, concession rate is only applicable if participant is paying for themselves. This rate cannot be applied if a third party is paying on behalf of a participant, even if the participant holds a valid concession card.
