Be Part of History Today

The Professional Practice Academy (PPA) is the largest industry led professional organisation for the community services sector in Australia and beyond. If you are serious about working within this sector, if you want to be part of history in the making as the Australian government rolls out the largest social reform since Medicare, you need to join with us today. With a comprehensive and current database of almost 3000 service providers, membership with us opens up a world of opportunity in the new world of NDIS.

Our support encompasses access to a professional community via multiple platforms, opportunity to be mentored in your chosen discipline-including peer work, access to a growing suite of world first recruitment tools, ease of access to internationally recognised education pathways, and personalised and branded marketing resources. We also provide a community services specific marketplace of practical and relevant resources reflective of the wisdom and skills of our sector-and which you can contribute to-individually or as an organisation.

In recognition of the predicted workforce shortfall of more than 70 000 nationally, we also provide students, volunteers, and new recruits with access to industry supported and approved work experience and placements. We are here to help strengthen, educate and powerfully support pathways to excellence for you. Even more exciting, is that we are currently offering 25% off membership, until 30 December 2016, to help make this opportunity even more affordable.

All paid memberships have access to their choice of attributional tool, which can help you decide if you are a good fit for a particular role. The first of these targets the Mental Health Support Worker.

Viewable here if you are new to the sector, and interested in this role, or if you are an industry body seeking to recruit staff of excellence to this role, then this is the resource for you.

Our Attributional Tool is industry developed, informed by practice excellence, and presented through the online forum. With the option to listen to questions, or read them yourself, our tool is easy to use and accessible to a diverse and relevant audience.

Our tool, is presented as a short course (taking approximately 1 hour to complete, or you can save and return to complete at your leisure), and provides new and existing staff with an opportunity to become more aware of their strengths and weaknesses in relation to the mental health support worker role. The test explores how well the individual performs on 9, industry bench-marked attributes. Successful completion results in the learner gaining an overview of their performance against these attributes. The tool helps to inform both the individual, and the employer around areas of strength in this role, and opens up informed opportunities for professional development and growth. This information can then facilitate provision of targeted training and development pathways, and increase the likelihood of successful role matching, and employment.

The attributes covered by our test include whether a potential employee has the capacity to be:

  • reflexive (to learn from one experience, and apply that learning to a comparable experience);
  • a chameleon (able to be adjust their personality to the needs and interests of their client);
  • able to build rapport (ability to get on with their client, and build trust);
  • Person-centred (ability to facilitate for the client what they would like-at times reading between the lines);
  • able to suspend judgement (ability to keep your own belief sets and values at bay);
  • able to solve problems in diverse ways;
  • professional (ability to be on time, to keep accurate notes etc.);
  • an advocate (ability to advocate the needs of the client to varied stakeholders such as psychologists, psychiatrists, or family members);
  • safe when working with clients (ability to look out for your own safety in the work environment); and
  • sit in the space of discomfort (ability to hear at times distressing stories, without feeling the need to always provide a solution) (Goldney, 2016).
