DVRCV’s FastTrack Professional Development Program is expanding in 2020.
Piloted in 2019 and funded by Family Safety Victoria (FSV), the program is designed to fast track the supply of knowledgeable and skilled Tier 1 senior level practitioners to take up urgently needed specialist family violence management and leadership roles.
The pilot program was conducted over a three-month period and involved ten face to face sessions, coaching and mentoring, workplace experience and a community of practice. Workshops were structured around leadership and management skills as outlined in FSV's family violence Capability Frameworks and included topics such as managing risk, leading systems and quality services, advocacy and reform.

The 2020 FastTrack program will be rolled out to practitioners working in both the response and prevention sectors.
Information on the new program and how to apply will be provided early 2020.
