Access together with the Settlement Council of Australia (SCoA), are hosting a workshop and forum at The Access Gateway on May 8-9. We invite members of the settlement sector to a practical workshop designed to address the National Settlement Services Outcomes Standards and examine their applicability to the crucial work performed across the sector. Managers, Case Workers and Volunteers are all invited to attend and explore different ways that the National Standards can be incorporated into work practices, with a particular emphasis on increasing capacity and encouraging and stimulating best practice across the sector.

In addition to the workshop, Access and SCoA are also hosting a Queensland Employment Innovation Forum. This forum, which is part of a series of 13 across Australia, will highlight existing success stories and facilitate the development of new ideas and initiatives that will drive improved employment outcomes for refugees and migrants. The QLD Employment Innovation Forum will bring together key players across the settlement sector, members of government, employment specialists and private enterprise in Brisbane and surrounding regions.
