Almost all unified groups of professionals, such as teachers, nurses, and therapists are bound by a shared set of principles and standards. As a unified group of Community Sector professionals supporting children, young people, families, and communities, we need a comparable set of principles, policies, standards and procedures to align our work.
LEAD Professional Development Association remains committed to facilitating the LEADers Community of Practice (COP), designed to assist decision-makers and leaders within the community services sector in enhancing their organisation’s practice capacity. This is achieved by:
- providing a purpose-built policy framework with agreed benchmark standards and good practices, and
- offering resources and support to seamlessly integrate policies, standards, processes and procedures into individual organisation’s service governance framework.
In an ever-evolving landscape with constant changes in legislation, reporting requirements, and contractual obligations, navigating what’s what and whether your organisation is functioning to its best capacity can be challenging, particularly as the sector moves towards recommissioning.
The LEADers COP will continue to offer guidance through the noise by facilitating interactive sessions through which organisations can strengthen its governance framework, accountability and practices. Throughout 2024, the LEADers COP will address key areas such as Childsafe Organisations, Employee Wellbeing, Financial Management, Brand Management, and Performance Management. We will delve into supporting policies, workplace practices, and their effects on employees in each area.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to develop and/or review your organisation’s policies, standards and procedures in a supportive environment, with collective learning promoting both skill development, sharing of resources and networking opportunities.
