UpSkill Training FAQ

Thanks for considering coming along to an UpSkill workshop! We’ve provided answers to the most common questions below, but you can always email us if you didn’t find what you were looking for.

Who do you deliver training to?

All of our training has been developed with support coordinators and NDIS allied health professionals in mind. However, all of our training is suitable for anyone who has a role in supporting people with complex support needs. 

Our ‘Working with people in the hospital setting’ workshop is also directed towards hospital clinicians and our ‘Supporting young people in aged care to benefit from the NDIS’ workshop is relevant for residential aged care providers and staff.

Whether you’re trying to understand how the different systems fit together or improve your personal practice, we’re passionate about making sure that people with complex support needs are able to live well in the community.  

We’ve trained more than 2500 support coordinators, allied health professionals, hospital clinicians, system coordinators, RAC providers, lifestyle coordinators, disability liaison officers, SDA providers and other NDIS service providers.
