This role is part of the Sector Development Unit which over the next twelve months is developing, implementing and consolidating a suite of programs and projects that will continue to build capability, connectedness and expertise in the specialist family violence and broader workforce sectors.
The Practice Development Advisor role will work to support workforce and practice development for the specialist family violence sector. This role will hold a portfolio on development and implementation of statewide service models for the specialist family violence sector, in addition to other sector development activities.
In 2020, DV Vic/DVRCV released the 2nd edition of the Code of Practice: Principles and Standards for Specialist Family Violence Services for Victim-Survivors and implementation of the Code is a key sector development focus.
