The Government's Joint Venture Business Unit, Family Violence and Sexual Violence (JVBU) is seeking up to 18 representatives to participate in two expert design groups (Tauiwi and Kaupapa Māori).

The deadline to submit your interest is 8 March 2019.

The JVBU is seeking "experienced senior practitioners/leaders from specialist family violence, violence within whānau and sexual violence NGOs to work in partnership with us to develop draft Tauiwi and Kaupapa Māori Specialist Organisational Shared Standards for family violence and violence within whānau services."

The organisational standards are intended to complement the Family violence, sexual violence and violence within whānau: Workforce capability framework by describing the organisational capabilities which support safe, holistic and effective specialist practice. The Standards will guide the development of complementary specialist organisational accreditation frameworks within government.

The groups will also work with the JVBU to design a draft "‘entry to expert’ specialist practitioner framework, encompassing the bodies of knowledge and skills required by the specialist workforce when responding to family violence and violence within whānau."

The draft Standards and framework will be shared with the specialist sectors for consultation and review.

This is part of a new programme of work by Ministry of Justice and the Joint Venture Business Unit to support strengthening the practice capabilities of the workforce.
