Innovative Graduate Program

Thirteen new graduates will be employed in 2022, across three major specialist family violence organisations in the northern metropolitan region. The successful organisations are inTouch, Kids First and the Salvation Army.

The NIFVS Team will coordinate the process across the region and link the new graduates into local professional development activities. Graduates will also participate in induction sessions and a community of practice with other graduates across the state.

Family Safety Victoria has funded the Family Violence and Sexual Assault Graduate Program, which had been implemented in rural and regional areas in 2021, and will be rolled out across metropolitan regions in 2022.

Building from Strength: 10-year Industry Plan for family violence prevention and response highlighted the need to invest in pathways to build the pipeline of suitably qualified workers for the specialist family violence, sexual assault and primary prevention sectors.

This Program builds on a graduate program successfully implemented in the Bayside Peninsula Area since 2018.
