Professional Development

_MG_1316+(1).jpg

Over 20 years of experience in this arena has afforded us the specialised, industry awareness to recognise the service gaps in professional development training.

Our facilitators have a wealth of personal and professional experience that we seek to share with like-minded organisations at conferences, meetings, corporate events, and workshops. Regarded by many as an innovative approach, Chin Up Project assists staff to develop and advance the outcomes for young people while promoting worker health and wellbeing.

Workshops

The ethos of Chin Up Project is congruent through all of our content. We champion the value of experiential learning, creating a community of learning within the classroom that provides a conduit to circulate the combined experiences of the participants. 

We explore best practice science through narrative, using case studies to gain unique insights, reframe perspective, engage and inspire.

Topics we cover are:

Creating connections – This workshop provides youth workers, case managers and teachers with a range of resources, tools, and activities that can be used to create and strengthen relationships with young people who have a history of being disengaged.

System Fatigue –Rediscover and confirm why you work with young people and how this relates to your own personal health and wellbeing. Many youth workers and teachers are feeling unsupported, undervalued and simply ‘burnt out’.  Understand how to deal with challenging staff, workplace conditions and systemic barriers.

Cultural Sensitivity - In this workshop, we explore the importance of a sensitive approach when working with young people from different Cultures and Sub- Cultures. Participants will gain a sound understanding of the behavioral and social impacts that create communication barriers while gaining a number of strategies to engage and challenge young people with a culturally sensitive approach.

Webinars

We consult with organisations to arrange for our workshops to be made available via webinar. 

This method of delivery has worked successfully for clients located in rural areas, interstate or those whose  organisational structure requires a flexible approach to training.

Speaking Engagements 

Storytelling is a powerful medium for creating change. 

Our facilitators have a wealth of personal and professional experience that we seek to share with like-minded organisations at conferences, meetings, corporate events, and workshops. 

The Chin Up Project works with and encourages some of the amazing young people we engage to collaborate with us as speakers. This is an incredible opportunity for both the young person and the audience to experience a unique 'coming together' and the sharing of learning.
