Change Maker training programs

No class found


The four to six-week program includes a short course followed by a structured project and workplace application, combined with support and guidance from mentors. It concludes with a one or two day review and further development workshop. Participants give presentations identifying what they have achieved and these presentations may be attended by Senior managers of the organisation.

Participants assist in preparation of a report outlining key achievements of the program and strategies for ensuring the change is practical and sustainable.

For best results, the program is supported by a sponsor. This is either an individual or group (such as the board) from within the organization whose role is to ensure projects align with the organisation’s goals and objectives. In addition, participants will work with at least one mentor throughout the program to guide and advise them on their project and development.
