Launch of Induction Films on working in SHS

The Industry Partnership are very proud to present eight short films on working with different client groups in SHS. The films are accessible within the Induction stream of the SHS Learning and Development Framework and below. Please share widely with staff and colleagues.

These films were created in consultation with the Communities of Practice. We would like to thank the film participants for giving their time to the project and particularly Mission Australia and Twenty10 for their assistance.
