PeakCare is celebrating the launch of the Hope and Healing e-learning program with the release of two important videos:

Minister Di Farmer launches Hope and Healing e-learning program
In this video, the Honourable Di Farmer MP, Minister for Child Safety, Youth and Women and Minister for the Prevention of Family and Domestic Violence announces that enrolments in the Hope and Healing e-learning modules are now open. Along with encouraging all residential care providers to make sure that they facilitate access by their staff to the modules, Minister Farmer notes that the introduction of new Minimum Qualifications Standards and theHope and Healing modules provides recognition of the “really critical and demanding role that resi care workers play in making sure that the children and young people who come into our care have the best possible opportunity for hope and confidence in their futures”.

PeakCare sincerely thanks the many team leaders who were nominated by their organisations to work with us in managing the enrolment of residential care workers across the State. Your enthusiastic and collaborative efforts have been very much appreciated.

The voice of residential care workers
As the transition to new Minimum Qualifications Standards proceed, who can be better placed than Queensland residential care workers to comment on what the attainment of a qualification and the new standards mean to them?

Watch this video and listen to the well-considered commentary by Will, Carmen, Marianne and Bianca. Their dedication to their profession and the children and young people in their care is apparent for all to see.  PeakCare sincerely thanks these fine spokespersons for making the time available to be filmed and their respective employers – Anglicare SQ, Safe Places for Children and UnitingCare Queensland.

You are also invited to watch this third video taken from the Hope and Healing Introductory Module in which PeakCare’s Executive Director, Lindsay Wegener, welcomes newly enrolled students and thanks a long list of organisations and individuals who have made invaluable contributions to the development of the training program.  Once again, a big thank you is extended to you all.
