Supporting the workforce
We all want to be our best. One way to achieve that at work is through professional development.
People working in the mental health and addiction sector need professional development to build their knowledge and skills, gain job satisfaction and ensure people using services receive the best possible care.
Regardless of whether you are a leader, clinician, nurse, service user champion, member of a primary care team or are part of the NGO workforce, Te Pou has developed professional development tools just for you.
Let's get real aims to ensure people working in services have the right skills, knowledge, values and attitudes to put people first and focus on their recovery. Professional supervision helps develop new staff members both professionally and personally.
Workforce data provides valuable information about the capacity and capability of the mental health and addiction workforce. This information is used to ensure the right people are working in the right place at the right time and in the right way. Check out the mental health and addiction job vacancies!
Te Pou also incorporates Disability Workforce Development which is a programme dedicated to supporting workforce development for frontline disability support staff as well as Le Va, Pasifika within Te Pou - New Zealand's national Pacific health workforce development programme.
Our regional work will ensure your organisation is aware of and can take part in these professional development opportunities.
In addition, Working with Maori aims to increase awareness of the value and uses of mental health and addiction outcomes and other information when working with Tangata whaiora Maori (indigenous service users).
