In 2020, Law Access initiated a project with various CLC members to develop a CIC training module to assist pro bono lawyers (and CLC lawyers) take on CIC matters with confidence and competence.
Lander & Rogers, a private firm based on the east coast who had a particular interest in victim compensation, offered to host an online training platform similar to one that they had already developed for asylum seekers called JRLink.
So, after 18 months of work, Tameka Brown, Chair of the CIC Project Steering Committee, along with Law Access, was pleased to launch the online CIC Training Platform at the CLWA Member Engagement Forum on 1 November 2022.
To access the CIC Training Platform, go to: https://cictraining.net.au/ and follow the prompts to register and sign up. Once signed up, you will gain access to the training content and can work your way through it all or jump in and out of the particular modules as necessary.
The module is released in a testing phase so if you have any feedback, pick up something that could be done better or have suggestions for further content to add, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can either make contact from within the training platform, or email Tameka at email@example.com.
Law Access sincerely thanks Tameka and the other Steering Committee members for their dedication to this project.
