2 days, face-to-face
This program is run as both a residential and non-residential program.
The residential experience, held at The Briars, achieves positive outcomes by both providing opportunities to be immersed in learning and to develop relationships and providing a new space and context where participants were equal and existing barriers and hierarchies are broken down.
The non-residential experience is held at the AIM Canberra campus. The benefits of studying in a classroom setting include being able to share first-hand experiences, ideas and questions with peers and our expert facilitators. You’ll study alongside like-minded people and strengthen your network.
