Fast Track Prevention program

down arrow

Our Fast Track Prevention program supports new and emerging leaders working to prevent family and gender-based violence in Victoria to transform their practice experience into leadership capability.

Fast Track Prevention translates capabilities from the Victorian Government’s Preventing Family Violence and Violence against Women Capability Framework into relevant, practical learning materials that can be applied to real-life professional settings. This program is for Victorian practitioners, and is delivered in an online format to support participation of metropolitan, regional and rural leaders.

More Fast Track Prevention programs are coming soon! Please join the waitlist to be notified when dates are released.
