In 2017-18, Community Legal Centres Queensland received funding from the Department of Justice and Attorney-General to complete a 'Training and Development' project. The project provided many and varied training opportunities to the community legal sector. All deliverables were met utilising a team-based approach within our centre, leveraging funding from alternative sources including core funding, pro bono support, infrastructure and relationships, as well as volunteer support. The project delivered;
- secure training opportunities based on identified need
- cross-sector training partnerships
- fee-based training at a discount rate
- sector specific training content
Our future training and development program will continue to include webinars, our annual state conference and leadership forum, as well as sector specific training and training based on the outcomes from our CLE training needs analysis, and other topical subject areas and emerging legal needs.
