Ignite for Outdoor Workers

About the program

This program is tailored  to outdoor workers who are new or with limited experience in a supervisory role, have no previous formal leadership training and want to extend and update their leadership skills or are interested in moving into a supervisory role in the future.

This program is a leadership learning pathway for Supervisors, Team Leaders and Coordinators working in outdoor workers roles in Local Government.

The program content and case studies have been adapted so they are relevant to the duties outdoor workers perform. 

The sessions include examples that participants can take back and use in their workplace setting.

Participant testimonial

Vanessa King
Parks Supervisor
Monash City Council

"Even though I have been a supervisor for over 3 years, I am always looking of ways to improve and learn how to be a better leader. When I heard there was program designed especially for Outdoor works I was interested to see what areas I could improve upon."
"It’s been good meeting people from other councils and seeing that they are dealing with similar experiences and learning from each other."
