Family Violence Sexual Violence and Violence within Whānau: Workforce Capability Framework
Careerforce is pleased to be the product designer and developer tasked to enable the Family Violence, Sexual Violence and Violence within Whānau: WORKFORCE CAPABILITY FRAMEWORK to come to life.
We have been tasked to embed the Framework into our existing New Zealand Diploma in Health and Wellbeing (Level 5) and develop workplace learning and assessment support resources for the workforce. The Framework is the result of the collaboration of government representatives and non-government experts in family violence and/or sexual violence and valuable feedback from government agencies, NGOs, professional associations and academics.
Working closely with the different ministries and Mixed Agency Team, we have developed an interactive learning resource, with scenario-based learning and assessment handbook all available through our online learning platform, MyPath.
