Working for a better future and outcomes for our children

An opportunity for the sector

Candice Butler, our Senior Practice Leader, is working on the development of the following projects in 2019 which will aim to provide an opportunity for engagement of future students, enhancing your supervision story and mentoring.

The projects are as follows:

  • QATSICPP Student Hub
  • A network of external supervisors
  • Mentoring program

The QATSICPP Student Hub will provide an opportunity for Social Work students to undertake their final placements within a QATSICPP Member Organisation. This placement will provide an invaluable opportunity for any student. Candice has already begun discussions with QATSICPP Member Organisations and Universities within the South East Queensland region (last year) and will be in contact shortly to have the Student Hub up and running in second semester 2019.

Strong workers are the vehicle for moving towards stronger families, communities and culture. It is with this in mind that we look towards the development of a network of external supervisors who are able to provide supervision to our workers whilst utilising the QATSICPP Supervision Framework. This network is by no means replacing Supervision that should be undertaken within the workplace rather an opportunity for further growth and exploration of our individual Supervision story.

Mentoring has been identified during both the Community of Practice and the recent Workforce strategy that is currently awaiting formal approval.   The aim of the Mentoring program will support mentees to develop their own skills and strategies and be able to reflect and guide their own practice. The program will also support the opportunity to identify future leaders within our sector.

If you would like any further information about any or all of the projects listed above, please do not hesitate to email Candice on candicebutler@qatsicpp.com.au
