Peer Navigation
(3) Organisation Work

This unit is part of a training program available free to people living with HIV who are working as peer navigators. If that’s you, and you’re interested in taking part, please contact the NAPWHA Learning Projects Officer (LPO).

About this module

Peer navigation involves working in an organisation and a workplace. You can become a peer navigator even though you may not have trained in community services or worked for a community organisation before. This module provides training in the skills and knowledge you need to work effectively in a community organisation.

  2. Participants can maintain and promote safety for themselves, clients and colleagues
  3. Participants can develop and work in effective partnerships with services, clinicians, researchers and communities

Getting started

Modules in LearnDash are divided into Lessons, and in each lesson there are Topics.

  • In the content outline below, click Expand All to see all the Lessons and Topics.
  • To begin the Module, click the first Topic under the first Lesson heading.

You begin each Lesson by clicking the first Topic in the content outline. In this case, you would click ‘Learning Your Story’ topic under the ‘Telling your story’ Lesson to get started.

  • When you complete each topic, click ‘Mark Complete‘ at the bottom of the Topic page.
  • When you complete all the topics in a lesson, click ‘Mark Complete‘ at the bottom of the Lesson page.

Remember to hit Mark Complete! This will help you track where you’re up to in the outline. The tick-mark beside each Lesson or Topic will turn solid green when you have completed that material.

Assessment

There are two kinds of assessment:

  1. In topic pages, there are Exercises that are optional, but recommended as a way to develop your understanding.
  2. At the end of a topic, you may find Assessment Tasks. Assessment tasks are completed in a Workbook – a Word document that you download at the beginning of the unit. You upload the completed workbook with your answers at the end of a unit.

When you upload completed workbooks, they go to the NAPWHA Learning Project Officer and your supervisor/manager for feedback. The feedback offers appreciation for your strengths and may also identify additional learning opportunities.

Talk with your supervisor or manager about whether you want to complete assessment for the program.

Completed assessments from this program can be documentation for recognition of prior learning for a TAFE qualification in community services.
