Education Services for professional learning

Add skills, knowledge, and qualifications to your practice

Ongoing professional development made simple

Build your knowledge, extend your skills

We provide a suite of learning options to support your professional growth. All of our education services are grounded in knowledge refined through our practice along with the latest research evidence, and input from those with lived experiences and cultural wisdom.

For over 30 years, we have provided training opportunities for professionals across a range of disciplines, including mental health, child protection and safeguarding, out-of-home care, family violence, education, youth justice and many others.

Our education services are affordable and accessible. For this reason, our flagship trainings are available for you to register in below as either self-paced or virtual classrooms so that you can study in your own way and from your own home or workplace.

For more advanced and customised trainings, we also offer hybrid options that blend virtual and in-person learning delivery.

If your organisation is looking for unique and exclusive learning just for your team, we are happy to work together to develop something to meet your needs. Please email support@childhood.org.au for more assistance.

When you train with us, you will know that any surplus is re-invested to support our direct work with traumatised children and young people as well as our research activities aimed at building a local knowledge base about effective practice.
