Foster a culture of learning

Caraniche at Work supports the learning and development needs of over 2,000 employees every year across Australia.

Our training is delivered by senior clinicians and facilitators, who are highly skilled in engaging meaningfully with participants, and are able to draw on real-life examples and applications.

Guided by best practice adult learning principles and developed in consultation with our Research and Professional Practice Team, our training packages are constantly updated to meet the changing needs of the modern workplace.


Tailored for you

Tailored training makes up the majority of the training services we design and deliver. Our clients include corporate organisations, government and NFPs.

Facilitated at your workplace at a date and time that suits you, we customise training not only to your organisation’s requirements, but also to the background of the participants taking part.

We can also manage your in-house training calendar, including needs analysis, monitoring staff attendance, promotion, venue bookings and evaluation.

Our training sessions are most often run as workshops, using transformational learning approaches shown to be highly effective with adults, rather than didactic teaching.
