A non-profit will offer seven training opportunities for social workers this year.

The Inter Agency Committee for Children, Families and the Community is set to offer training in Compassionate Care and Non-profit Organisational Development.

A spokeswoman for the organisation said: “IAC’s Compassionate Care training series includes three trainings this spring which focus on developing the skills and emotional resilience human service providers need to build and sustain positive, nurturing and healing relationships with clients.”

The first of the three sessions will take place on March 1 and focus on “mental resilience, mindfulness and self care” and will cost $40 for IAC members and $200 for non-members.

The second and third sessions, to be held on March 16 and 30, will focus on supporting people in crisis, with the earlier session focused on staff who deal with clients and the second on managers and supervisors.

Both of the sessions will cost $20 for IAC members and $100 for non-members.

The IAC will offer two certificates and two privacy workshops as part of its non-profit organisational development training series, with the first to start this month.

The spokeswoman said: “In February, IAC will hold its Certificate in Programme Design Series.

“This three-day training series runs February 16, 23 and March 2. The training is co-facilitated by Nicola Paugh, IAC executive director, and Claudette Fleming and experienced non-profit executive.

“The training is an intermediate-level training for non-profit professionals responsible for the design, delivery or evaluation of social programmes and services. The cost is $75 for IAC members and $350 for non-members.”

This month the IAC will also host Privacy Policy Development and Privacy Trust Centres training on February 28, in partnership with the Privacy Commissioner, at a cost of $10 for IAC members and $40 for non-members.

The IAC and Privacy Commissioner will also host training on Privacy Programme Management on April 6 at the same cost.

Later that month, the IAC will partner with Kellogg Northwestern Executive Education to host a Certificate in Non-profit Financial Management, with the first sessions between April 13 and 14, and the second between April 18 and 19.

“Senior executives of non-profit organisations will improve their understanding of — and ability to manage — the entire financial picture of their organisation,” the spokeswoman added. “The cost is $145 for IAC members and $575 for non-members.

“IAC is proud to offer training that is subsidised by 75 to 80 per cent for IAC members. Supporting donors for our 2022-23 bursary programme include SiriusPoint, HSBC, Deloitte and Hannover Re.

“Without their investment, many non-profits would not be able to access important training and professional development opportunities.”
