The 2020 three day program will run subject to enrolments (15).  The cost per participant is $1,000 plus GST (this cost includes a copy of the FPM Reflective Practice Handbook)

This course explores the content of the Family Partnership Model (FPM) and its application within a leadership role. It is modelled on the successful Family Partnership Model (Davis & Day, 2010) and helps those in leadership positions to identify and explore the necessary attributes of engaging leadership and the processes for enabling those whom they support to implement change.

The course is designed to provide reflection, discussion and peer to peer practice opportunities in relation to the skills, qualities and processes necessary to engage with and work in partnership with families and support parents and practitioners to plan and implement change.

This course will also enable managers to identify the steps involved in implementing and embedding the Family Partnership Model across a team of practitioners.

By being involved in this program participants will:

  • engage and work more effectively with parents, families, community and staff
  • develop a clear understanding of the FPM helping process, and develop and practise the skills of engaging parents/others and developing effective relationships with them
  • explore the application of the FPM in an educational leadership context
  • explore, confirm and develop their own understanding and application of the helping process within a safe, reflective environment.
