STARTTS has trained over 25,000 workers, volunteers and community members in NSW over the last 5 years to support them provide appropriate and culturally sensitive services to people from refugee backgrounds.

STARTTS achieves this by bringing together a range of activities such as trainings in the workplace, calendar workshops, seminars, evening presentations and Psychevisual online lectures, which allow for the wide dissemination of knowledge and skills in this important field of work.

STARTTS also contributes presentations to Psychevisual Online Lectures which are available for viewing for a small fee from the Psychevisual website

STARTTS is sure that you will find something in our training program relevant to you and your work.

We hope to see you at one of our upcoming training activities.
