MHeLP – Mental Health eLearning Program
LSV would like to acknowledge the work of the Belgravia Foundation who launched an industry specific Mental Health eLearning Program (MHeLP) at the Belgravia Foundation breakfast event on 11 February 2021.
The program is aimed at staff and volunteers working in the leisure sector (leisure centres, sports stadiums, fitness and aquatic centres, fun parks, caravan and holiday parks, wellness centres) and sport sectors and has two timely and critical desired learning outcomes:
- Provide staff and volunteers with a greater awareness of mental health in sport and leisure, with the capacity and confidence to advocate and take action when appropriate, within scope of practice.
- Enable onsite leaders to be equipped to support their venue/location staff and volunteers in completing the MHeLP program.
Created in conjunction with multiple industry collaborators across Australia and New Zealand, with expert input from specalists around the globe, the MHeLP program is freely available and a must for industry personnel during this difficult period.
Developed by the team at Royal Life Saving Society Australia (RLSSA), the new Conflict Management online training course was specifically designed for the aquatics industry.
The training focuses on effective communication techniques, managing challenging situations and customer service. This learning uses a scenario based approach to provide essential skills that are relevant to pool lifeguards within aquatic facilities with knowledge that can be applied to a range of roles.
The course can be booked into by industry personnel individually or coordinated by aquatic facility operates for their staff cohort. It will take approximately 30 to 60 minutes to complete and costs just $25.
Made available thanks to the support of the team at Royal Life Saving New South Wales, the new RLSSA Cultural Competency Training is more important than ever before.
In an ever increasingly diverse population, this course will provide candidates with valuable knowledge on how increasing organisational diversity makes businesses stronger and more accessible whilst also raising settlement, social cohesion and safety.
The training is fully online and delivered across 9 short sharp modules. As a result, the training can be completed at your own pace and convenience. The training will take between 1.5 to 3 hours to complete and is completely free.
