In the last year, the Appeals team has also assisted in BISA’s systemic advocacy efforts.
We have made submissions to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal Reform, the Disability Royal Commission and the NDIS Review.
We work collaboratively with other agencies across the country to bring light to systemic issues faced in NDIS Appeals.
Training, Monash Workshop & Organisational Days
Building our teams knowledge through providing training opportunities, and bringing our team together to work collaboratively is important for building a knowledgeable and satisfied workforce.
Our staff organisational days have focused on inter-disciplinary working, training on GAS goals and planning for our student clinics. They have also included training on complex-behavioral management with sessions from guest speakers Dr. Tim Feeney and Dr. Kate Gould.
Additionally, staff have been able to attend various training opportunities throughout the year including the latest research in PBS+, having difficult conversations, epilepsy awareness, staff wellbeing, and goal setting relevant for acquired brain injury.
In addition to professional development and training opportunities, organisational days give staff the opportunity reflect on different objectives from the strategic plan, including most recently how BISA can become the employer of choice.
