Multi-disciplinary Training

The Children’s Court of Victoria, Department of Families, Fairness and Housing and Victoria Legal Aid work in partnership to deliver multi-disciplinary training opportunities for professionals working within the statutory child protection legal system.

Multi-disciplinary Training encourages professionals to come together to learn, share ideas, develop an understanding of each other’s role and prepare for change or reform. Multi-disciplinary Training allows professionals across multiple disciplines to work together so that their coordinated services improve outcomes for vulnerable children, young people and families.
