Alongside of Te Tau Tītoki, Te Pou will be piloting a series of workshops to support implementing the framework. These are designed to help leaders to support their staff towards demonstrating essential knowledge and skills. The resource is also designed to aid in planning workforce development in line with knowledge of the autism spectrum.
The overarching theme of both the framework and implementation workshops is around understanding the wellbeing of autistic people and working towards improving peoples’ quality of life.
The Autism Leadership Series will include a pre-learning activity, two face-to-face workshops, two coaching sessions and a half-day wrap-up session where participants will present on how learning impacted the life of the person being supported.
The programme will be co-facilitated by clinical leaders in the disability field alongside an autistic person. Likewise, coaching support will be available from both the clinical and lived-experience perspective.
Programme workshop dates are:
Attendance at all three workshops is mandatory.
If you or someone from your organisation is interested in being a part of this pilot programme, please contact John Vogenthaler for more details and the process for submitting an Expression of Interest. EOIs are due by 15 July.
