Free NDS Quality and Safeguarding Training

Location: Western Australia (Online)
Date: 4/08/2020 to 26/08/2020

We are pleased to release our NDS Quality and Safeguarding Sector Readiness Free training schedule for August, 2020.

NDS is working in partnership with the Department of Communities, WAAMH and WAIS to provide sector wide capacity building initiatives, funded by the WA State Government. This funding has been provided to:

  • NDS to support registered providers in the metropolitan area;
  • WAIS to support regional registered providers; and
  • WAAMH to support registered providers of psycho social supports.

In August we are offering a series of workshops, to build sector capability, in preparation for the NDIS Quality and Safeguard Commission requirements.

NDS will gather feedback from the July training attendees, as well as disseminate a survey to evaluate and analyse sector requirements. This data will be used to develop the NDS schedule of training, learning and develop opportunities for the remainder of the year.

Training schedule: 4 - 26 August 2020
