SHARC Peer Worker Training

21 February 2019 @ 10:00 am - 27 February 2019 @ 3:00 pm

Peer workers, like 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 in the AOD sector, and ensures that the peer workforce has a discipline-specific framework.

The SHARC Peer Worker Training seeks to:

  • Educate peer workers around core concepts and skills within the peer work discipline
  • Assist peer workers to practically apply best practice peer work in formalised settings
  • Assist peer workers to understand the AOD service system in Victoria and the role of care and recovery co-ordination
  • Bring an Intentional Peer Support (IPS) lens to the peer work discipline in AOD
  • 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

This 5 day training package was developed through SHARC’s many years of experience in the delivery of peer programs and activities. It continues to be reviewed by SHARC and the Victorian AOD Peer Workforce to ensure its currency and applicability. This course is focussed entirely on the peer work discipline and specifically designed to provide practical knowledge and skills for existing and emerging Peer Workers in the AOD sector.
