The workshop will include guidelines for writing qualifications, units and submissions, and identify available support materials and templates.

Mental Health Awareness with Jules Haddock

This session is designed for VET practitioners who wish to boost their understanding of mental illness and mental wellbeing in their learning zones.

If there are 15 students in the next group of learners you teach, it’s likely three of them will contend with an episode of mental illness during the next 12 months. Our response as teachers always matters to their personal wellbeing, and to their continued and positive progress in a learning program. This workshop with Jules Haddock describes mental wellbeing and mental illness, and explains the effects of mental illness on learning. The workshop will build your confidence in raising conversations around mental illness, introduces strategies for engaging in supportive conversations that assist learners to manage their mental wellbeing, and provides tips and strategies for supporting learners who are experiencing mental illness. 

Social Media and Marketing for RTOs with Joel Martin

Marketing and promotion are valuable services for a prospective student. They are the avenues that bring the array of training choices to attention. They help students to weigh up the choices and decide the best fit for their needs and aspirations. Marketing and promotion are critical to branding and sustainability for any business, including RTOs. In this workshop with Joel Martin, you’ll increase your familiarity with marketing principles and practices, how they add value for students and your RTO, and how to apply them in the competitive VET sector.
