What you will learn

Gain contemporary skills and knowledge for your job now.

Everyone deserves to work in a safe, respectful and encouraging work environment – but when this means different things to different people, how can we ensure this occurs?

This Melbourne MicroCert is ideal for any professional seeking to gain a deeper understanding of mutually respectful workplace communication techniques and behaviours to help create safe and respectful work environments.

Understand personal safety and respectful communication

Critically analyse workplace behaviours and explore communication techniques to help you relate to professional colleagues in culturally safe ways.

Set boundaries to prevent sexual harassment, assault and bullying

Engage with the concepts of consent and personal-professional boundaries. Consider workplace policy, protocols, industry standards and codes of conduct, related to fairness, inclusivity, personal safety and interaction with others.

Define your own personal-professional boundaries

Examine your current workplace behaviours, including how they relate to others, and learn to define and express more positive boundaries at work. Understand how setting your own clear personal-professional boundaries can benefit yourself as well as others, and bring this awareness to the workplace.

Exercise informed professional judgement

Using practices from the creative and performing arts, you'll develop a creative work in response to a real or imagined workplace scenario that shows how you've used your new knowledge to make an informed professional judgement.

Who you will learn from

Learn from skilled academic and professional experts who will share invaluable knowledge you can use in your job.
