Our workshops

Enhancing the skills of staff within organisations improves outcomes for the clients they work with. In today’s competitive environment, outcomes and the application of evidence based practices is not only good for clients; it is also required by funders. 180Wellbeing can provide training to other organisations in order to help them improve client outcomes.

180Wellbeing draws its knowledge and best practice from Marist180’s 100 years of serving the community services sector. We have a strong heritage in delivering services for children and young people who may be living in residential care, are homeless, seeking work and more recently, refugees and asylum seekers of all ages who are starting new lives in Australia. This has helped us develop a suite of best practice approaches and expertise which we are now able to share with our peers in the industry.

We tailor our training programs to the unique needs of each organization through consultation with the person commissioning the program. Training is delivered on site and our staff follow this up by providing access to self-paced eLearning modules that consolidate the training. Naturally, our staff are always available for further training or consultation to help turn the evidence into practice.

There are 14 main areas in which we can share best practice. These are detailed below:
