In line with ‘Ireland’s National Skills Strategy 2025 – Ireland’s Future’ the HVA training programme aims to
- Upskill frontline Home Visitors across Ireland to adapt the existing high-quality, impactful, consistent, responsive service to existing and future challenges e.g., pandemics, lack of access to assessments/specialist services, immigration, including the Ukrainian refugee crisis.
- Enhance leadership skills of the HVA network to increase impact and provide ongoing agile strategic workforce development.
- Contribute to the alignment of HV standards across the country and Government’s First Five goal of developing a standardised model of home visiting in Ireland.
Over the course of the programme, a series of 6 knowledge-sharing workshops will enable home visiting staff to expand their skills, competencies and knowledge.
