What's happening

We are developing a Community Training Program to provide a wide range of free learning opportunities for local residents and community group representatives to increase their knowledge, skills and confidence around important topics that encourage a thriving and robust community.

We are seeking feedback from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse community groups to inform the planning of the Community Training series, planned for September 2023 – May 2024.

This engagement closed Tuesday 11 July 2023.

What we asked

We asked community members and leaders to rank their top 3 areas of interest for future training sessions, from the following options:

  • Introduction to your local council
  • Writing grant applications
  • Aboriginal cultural competence
  • Effective cross-cultural collaboration
  • Organising successful events
  • Community leadership
  • Resilience and wellbeing

How we asked

What we heard

The survey helped to identify the following top three areas of interest among community members and leaders:

  1. Writing grant applications
  2. Effective cross-cultural collaboration
  3. Organising successful events

Closely followed by 'community leadership training'.

The below chart shows the number of 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice rankings each training subject received.
