About the course

Course outline

Each course consists of a workshop delivered face-to-face or by video conference, followed by optional four-week facilitator support. This support is in the form of a community of professional learning. It is self-paced and takes a minimum of 1-2 hours of engagement per week.

During these four weeks participants will have the opportunity to practise and reflect on the new learning and exchange experiences and ideas with each other and the facilitator.
