Domestic and family violence—government employee training(Question No 324)

Mrs Kikkert asked the Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence, upon notice, on 4 June 2021:

(1) How many ACT government employees received either tier one or tier two domestic violence response training in (a) 2016-2017, (b) 2017-2018, (c) 2018-2019, (d) 2019-2020 and (e) 2020-2021 year to date.

(2) What percentage did this number represent out of all ACT government employees, in each of the years listed in part (1).

(3) How many ACT government employees in total have receiving either tier one or tier two training since the initiative began.

(4) What percentage does this number represent out of all ACT government employees.

Ms Berry: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

The ACT Government Domestic and Family Violence Training Strategy is supported by two training packages, these are:

the ACT Package - for all ACT Government Directorates (except Canberra Health Services); and

the Canberra Health Services (CHS) Package - for CHS staff. This training has a greater health worker focus and is based on the existing Victorian Government strategy known as Strengthening Hospital Responses to Family Violence.

Not all ACT Public Servants are required to complete Tier 1 and 2 training under these two training packages.

The data reflected below does not represent the full extent of training delivered as some of the full training program is predominately delivered through e-Learning modules i.e. Foundation and Managers.
