Professional Development Seminars

Empowerment with Education

Global Disability & Health Care Education programs empower workers with additional professional knowledge and skills.

Education promotes great competence and confidence to work in the human services fields of disability, community care, mental health and nursing.

The more skilled workers have more work and have more opportunities. Competent workers are sought after by customers.

Your increased competence and education can lead to more opportunities and career advancement.

Professional development should be an ongoing and regular activity—always up dating old knowledge and learning new skills.

Education is uniquely owned by the individual and always remains yours. Education is empowerment in work and in life.

Global Disability & Health Care Education for empowerment and advancement.

Planning your professional development education is the foundation of planning ...

  • Your resume enhancement
  • Your job competitiveness
  • Your future employability
  • Your future income security
  • Your readiness for opportunities
  • Your advancement
  • Your career
  • A better life.

External Participants Welcome

Initially we developed our education program to meet the needs of our Global staff and for the first few years courses were closed to our staff training needs.

However, we now have openned limited selected courses up to any interested workers in the field. Some small to medium sized organisations use us for their staff training. Our course fees are reasonably priced for both workers and organisations on tight budgets.

It pays to booking into courses early to ensure a place.

The only courses currently open to external applicants on a prepaid basis for individual or group booking are:-

  • Medication Course
  • PEG Feeding Course
  • Keep Them Safe: Child Protection for Mandatory Notifiers.

Other courses are only provided for Global staff.

Quality Education

We aim to offer a high standard of professional development education and we only use educators who have substantial experience and suitable qualifications for their field of expertise. Most of our lecturers are current or former university lecturers in nursing and behavioural science related disciplines who have also had substantial sector experience in order to give students both the best practice theory as well as the real world insights that comes from experience. Clinical and nursing skill courses are only given by suitably qualified Nurse Educators/Registered Nurses/Clinical Nurse Consultants.

All our courses and lecturers are evaluated – and we ask all students to provide confidential evaluations and post them in a secure deposit box located in our lecturer room.

We have a well appointed training room with all the presentation aides and special items that are required to demonstrate and practice the course activities.
