NSW Community Services and Health ITAB was the lead agency for the development of SkillsLink2Work working closely with NSW Department of Family and Community Services, Commonwealth Government Department of Social Services and carers from Candles Cancer Support Group Inc Kanwal NSW, Carers NSW, DAISI (Disability & Aged Information Services INC) Ballina NSW, Interchange Illawarra, Koori Yarning Group Dubbo NSW and Sutherland Shire Carer Support Services Inc.
Carers identified that combining caring and paid work is one of their highest priorities, but that being out of the workforce made it hard to understand how the skills they developed as a carer could be valuable to an employer. SkillsLink2Work allows carers to self-select the tasks they regularly perform and the website then 'translates' their activities into a personalised report of employment related skills.
SkillsLink2Work was launched on April 29th 2016 by the Hon John Ajaka MLC, Minister for Disability Services and Minister for Ageing in NSW and Hon Jane Prentice MP, Assistant Minister for Disability Services and is now available on line.
This DVD highlights key areas that are delivered through the face to face component of Identifying and Responding to Children and Young People at Risk of Harm. The DVD contains various scenarios that are used as triggers in the training to assist participants to identify the short and long term impact of child abuse and neglect.
