This 2 hour session will support Directors, Managers and Educational Leaders in their understanding of ECCC services responsibilities in line with both Federal and State ‘Discrimination Acts’. Information gained within this session will also support services to develop effective and meaningful policies and procedures which are reflective of rights and responsibilities.
