Specialising in training for government services at the local, state and commonwealth level, NGOs, not-for-profit and private sector businesses delivering government or community-based programs, Allwood & Associates ensures all training programs meet the particular needs of your organisation.

Interactive and engaging

Our training programs are highly interactive and engaging. The content is customised to have practical application and relevance to participants’ work roles and sectors. All training programs incorporate current evidence-based best practice models and approaches and are delivered all over Australia, in urban, regional and remote settings.

Highly experienced trainers

Our trainers are of the highest calibre in their area of expertise. We undertake a comprehensive needs analysis to tailor both the training program and trainer to meet your specific requirements, and ensure your trainer has in-depth experience in your service, sector and context, with the skills needed to deal with issues likely to arise during training.

Leadership & Management Courses

These programs build the capacity of leaders and managers to achieve the organisational results expected of them. The training develops skill in responding to the range of common challenges emerging in their work roles within the NGO, Government sectors and related business services.

Workskills & Performance Courses

These programs develop the capacity of staff at all levels, and builds competence in areas creating blockages or challenges in achieving individual performance or team result within NGO, Government sectors and related business services.

Counselling & Client Work Courses

These programs develop the capacity of social workers, psychologists, counsellors, case managers, peer support workers and frontline service delivery staff. This training assists staff to work more effectively with clients to achieve the specific outcomes required within the NGO or government sector service contexts.
