Support Coordinators and Local Area Coordinators have similar roles in helping participants implement their NDIS Plans. We offer training, tools and resources that are crafted to the needs of each group.

This course is designed for organisations who have purchased the Support Coordination Toolkit. In this course we use practical, real-world scenarios to explore common practice challenges in Support Coordination, and give workers confidence in applying the SCA Tools.

  Reflections on common challenges

The one day session above is a pre-requisite for this two day course. The two courses can be delivered together in a three day block, or separately, depending on organisational need.

We ensure each course is tailored to the audience by using relevant scenarios and working with leaders to understand the current organisational context, and to identify and emphasise key messages for the organisation.

If requested, this two day course can provided in train the trainer format, with organisations receiving Facilitator Guides and access to all other resources required to independently facilitate any subsequent sessions required by new appointees.
