Supporting school communities after a disaster

To support school leaders in their work, the Centre of Professional Learning (CPL) and our Trade Union Training (TUT) section have teamed up to offer a series of Leadership Webinars in Term 4.

Disasters have significant impacts on both the physical environment as well as the communities in which we live. This webinar will assist school leaders to identify the psychological, behavioural and social impacts of disaster on students based on a body of research engaged in by the presenters following the Black Saturday bushfires. The webinar will also assist school leaders to identify the psychological, behavioural, occupational and social impacts of disasters on teachers and staff.

Participants will develop an understanding of a stepped care approach to supporting people after a disaster, and develop knowledge and skills in strategies to support students following a traumatic incident.


Completing a Supporting school communities after a disaster webinar will contribute 1 hour and 30 minutes of NESA Registered PD addressing 6.2.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
