WAECSSA is pleased to present Dana Vulin as their keynote speaker

At the age of 25 Dana Vulin faced a turn of events that would change her life forever. Dana endured a horrific attack that left her with horrendous third degree burns to 64 percent of her body and face. Within seconds, Dana's former life, her physical functioning, her independence, her goals and dreams were ripped away.

The destruction caused to Dana's body and face was unimaginable, the pain that she endured was indescribable. However, through perseverance and resilience, Dana stands here today having overcome extreme adversity to prove that miracles do happen.

Application Writing with Jackie Watt Consultancy

This session will assist you to work through the selection criteria using the Situation, Action, Outcome (SAO) format and understand how you can apply your skills and knowledge to the role and creating a professional resume that is succinct and professional.

Immunisation and Visas with Pam Hide and Elizabeth Roberts

The Enrolment in Public Schools policy covers the enrolment requirements linked to immunisation and visas. Checking the details means enrolments at your school will comply with the policy. Knowing what to look for and where to get the ‘right information’ helps everyone manage enrolment processes confidently and record enrolment information accurately on SIS Classic.

Accountable and Ethical Decision Making with Ava Oprandi

The Accountable and ethical decision making program is available as a face to face presentation to staff and also through the Department of Education professional learning tab on the portal. Our Public sector commission program is tailored especially for education staff and covers many relevant and practical subjects directly related to the work our staff do with children. Our workplace is child protection and education balanced therefore staff need to be aware of and manage their relationships with each other and parents, considering their role as a public officer and how their conduct outside of work hours can affect their career. The impact of social media is discussed, physical contact with students and its risks, official and confidential information, gifts and benefits, fraud and corruption, duty of care, conflict of interest, reporting misconduct and recordkeeping are all covered.

Conflict Resolution with Peter Mathie

Peter is the principal and mediator at Perth Mediation Centre. He has a wide and diverse background. Before turning to community work, Peter completed an apprenticeship and tried his hand at a range of occupations including farm work, sales and transport. As a community worker he was involved in services for young people, students and job seekers. In government he worked with funded organisations and managed service delivery.

Peter’s mediation practice grew out of his more recent work as a management consultant, he is a nationally accredited mediator (NMAS) and a registered FDRP. He holds a trade certificate and tertiary qualifications in business, management and family dispute resolution.

At the conclusion of the session participants will have discussed a range of difficult workplace conversations and explored alternative strategies to manage them.
