Delivery Models

The Innovator Training Program is delivered via a series of self-directed learning modules, facilitated workshops and small group project discussions with ARIIA staff. We offer several different delivery models to suit your situation.

There are four models of delivery, providing a flexible range of options to suit the varied needs of staffing availability and organisation requirements in the aged care sector. 

The overall time commitment is the equivalent of three weeks full time, and each delivery model is comprised of the same module and workshop content, with the same commitment from Facilitators, but structured in four different ways. 

Upon application to the Innovator Training Program, you will be asked to select your first two preferences for delivery model, which we will endeavor to meet where possible.

These four delivery options are outlined in more detail below.

Please email us at itp@ariia.org.au if you would like help choosing which delivery model would be right for you.
