Webinar Series – How Can we Respond and Nurture Friendships and Relationships?

Many people with disability would like to have friends, yet have few people other than family or paid people that they can really count on. We may believe that if friendships and relationships do not come easily or happen ‘naturally’ then they are not possible at all. Our two presenters will show that it is possible to assist people to make friends and to develop a broad personal network – and that everyone’s lives are richer, safer and in some ways easier when we do.

So what does it take and what can we do to bring people and relationships into the life of a person with disability?

Update from CRU : New RTO starting soon!!!

This information was shared in a CRU Email update on Tuesday 26th July 2022

Over the past three years we have been working on the establishment of a Registered Training Organisation.  In partnership with Staffing Options, we are very excited to let you know that we have set up a new entity to be known as Crucial Training Options (CTO).

We will be offering accredited training courses from September 2022 – the first is a Certificate III in Individualised support (Disability) CHC33015.  First Aid and CPR will also be available, and in 2023 we plan to launch the Diploma in Community Services CHC52015.  Staffing Options and CRU are both keen to provide students of Crucial Training Options with opportunities to gain a qualification that meets all the requirements of a Certificate or Diploma level course and gives them a solid grounding in working respectfully with people with disabilities, one person at a time.

Initially these courses will be offered face to face in South Brisbane, with a requirement of one day per week in the classroom.  In time, we are keen to offer this to students outside Brisbane, but we are not able to do this just yet.

There will be no change to the way CRU offers our workshops and webinars. This will be offered in addition to the work of CRU.

We are in the process of finalising dates and our team of trainers and there will be more detail available very soon.

If you are interested, please get in touch with our Training Coordinator Eirin at Coordinator@cto.qld.edu.au and we can provide more information on the enrolment process.  We have attached flyers and there is some more detail on our website http://www.cto.qld.edu.au/.  Please let us know if you require these attachments in a different format.  Join our mailing list via this link to hear more.
