Become certified as a Family Group Conference Facilitator.

Training through online learning and a 2 day workshop.

Module One: Online Learning which covers the history, theory and begins the skills development.  Approximately 20 hours of course work.

Module Two: Workshop. In the workshop you will learn more about the process and participate in role plays and simulations to develop your skills. Ideally you should complete the theory first but last minute enrolments are able to be accommodated.  Successful completion of Module One is required in order to be certified with a Family Group Conference Facilitator Certificate.

Public Workshop

Family Group Conference Facilitator Training Workshops are held when we have a group of ten or more people in an area. You may also be able to join or host a hosted workshop.

  • Ballina 3rd and 4th February 2020
  • Sydney 6th and 7th February 2020*
  • Sydney 6th and 7th April 2020

* Due to the fires in NSW we have added a 2nd date for Sydney for those who can’t make it to the workshop in February. If there are not sufficient people (ten is a minimum) we will cancel the February workshop in Sydney and run Ballina in February and Sydney in April.  We believe that if you are enrolled in the course at the time you submit your Tender application you will be considered. 

At the moment we are only offering public workshops in NSW due to the demand generated by the Department of Human Services FGC Panel.

We would be delighted to run workshops in other states if there is the demand or run a hosted workshop in your area.

Hosted Workshop Option

If your organisation or organisations in your area have 10 or more people who you would like to train as Family Group Conference Facilitators you can host a workshop. There is a saving of $300 per person plus a rebate of $150 per person who does not belong to your organisation you allow to participate with your group training.

Please note: When hosting you are responsible for all costs associated with travel and accommodation for our facilitator and for venue and catering for the workshop. The minimum workshop fee is $8,900 plus $890 for each additional person your organisation puts in the workshop.
