The Lighthouse Project is a partnership between LG Professionals WA and the Department of Communities to increase employment of people with disability in Western Australian Local Government.
As part of the Lighthouse Project, as series of workshops were conducted across the State in 2015 and 2016. The workshops were well attended and received high satisfaction ratings. In response to the success of those workshops, LG Professionals WA are pleased to be offering more free training workshops in 2018.
The workshops will cover:
- The benefits of employing people with disability
Undertaking disability friendly workplace audits
Developing and implementing strategies for "Outcome 7" of Disability Access and Inclusion Plans (DAIPs)
A session with local providers if employment supports and Disability Employment Service Providers to present their services where possible.
An update on the impact of the NDIS on employment services.
Sharing of best practice examples of disability employment.
The training workshops will assist Local Governments with Outcome 7 strategies that make a real difference to employment outcomes for people with disability.
It is highly recommended that each Local Government send at least one senior staff member (preferably those in general management, HR, Community Development or similar roles) to attend a workshop. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
The workshops are free events but registration is required. - Please see the left hand side of the page for a list of upcoming workshops, links to online registration and a PDF copy of the registration form.
