Training

The Migrant Resource Centre (Southern Tasmania) offers a number of training opportunities for organisations and individuals. The current training program is divided into modules. A training program is delivered onsite at the MRC Glenorchy. Individuals can register and attend independently or as supported by their workplace.

An organisation can request training be delivered at their workplace. The organisation can identify which modules would be most suitable for their staff development needs, and then contact the Training Coordinator to book training: training@mrchobart.org.au.

MRC and the Phoenix centre offers the following training modules:

  • Cultural Awareness Training
  • Torture and Trauma Awareness
  • Culturally Sensitive Communication
  • safeTALK
  • Working with Adults from a Refugee Background
  • Working with Children from Refugee Backgrounds
  • Working in health settings with people from a CALD background

Sessions are interactive, draw on participants’ experiences and combine formal presentations with large and small group discussions. Facilitators also use case scenarios, practice examples and audio visual materials.
