There are a number of reasons why online training is valuable in light of the Royal Commission:
These reasons include that:
- The training can be consistently provided across the diocese;
- It enhances participation for those from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds (CALD) who have found face to face training difficult. This is made possible through the use of ‘ReadSpeaker’ software that reads the material out to a participant at a speed that they are comfortable as well as the course content being made available in languages spoken within the diocese in the future;
- Accurate reporting is available on those who have participated in training, when training for participants is due, as well as reminders and updates being sent to participants; and
- Additional groups such as Wardens and Safe Ministry Reps will be able to receive training specific for their roles in the future equipping them further.
