Family Violence Worker
Aboriginal Shelters of Ontario (ASOO) recognizes that there is a need for industry-specific training and educational opportunities that are accessible and relevant to its Indigenous Workers.
This program fills a significant gap and allows Indigenous Shelters to provide more effective supports to families experiencing violence across Ontario. Aboriginal Shelters of Ontario is excited to have partnered with FNTI to develop programming that meets Ministry standards of recognized training and education. The Advisory, composed of shelter leaders from across Ontario, with North/South and remote/rural/urban representation, will continue to provide guidance around both the relevancy of content and the best-fit approach(es) for structuring the program to ensure Learner success and that in-demand skills and knowledge taught are meeting shelter/community needs. These micro-credentials are specific to the industry and will contribute to wellness in Indigenous communities by upskilling current employees and providing skills and competencies to prospective workers who are traditionally underserved by postsecondary education.
Proposed courses* include:
- Interviewing & Helping Skills
- Creating Groups & Group Facilitation
- Human Trafficking
