Multifangled was involved in creating the Fit to Drive Year 11 Workshop. This is a half-day session conducted in schools which supports young people to make good decisions when faced with risky driving situations, both as passengers, and in terms of their future driving safety.
Multifangled was involved in developing education materials to support the use of Graham as an educational tool for discussion about human vulnerability.
Graham is an initiative of the Transport Accident Commission’s (TAC) designed to highlight how susceptible the human body is to the forces involved in road crashes. It is a part of the TAC’s Towards Zero vision and draws attention to the changes we need to protect ourselves from our own mistakes on the road.
Multifangled developed education materials for five stories about young workers. The resources support teaching/learning around OHS awareness for young people.
The stories explore subjects such as bullying, asbestos exposure, working on a farm, manual handling, training, supervision, machinery guarding, workplace procedures and working under pressure.
Loddon Mallee community of practice
In mid-2014 the Loddon Mallee Regional Council of ACFE, in partnership with Future Employment Opportunities (FEO), contracted project consultants Jan Hagston, Linnet Hunter and Lynne Matheson (Multifangled P/L) to explore how Communities of Practice (CoP) could benefit Learn Local (LL) networks in two targeted locations, Greater Bendigo and Loddon and Buloke local government areas. Further, the project was to develop and pilot one or two CoPs with the aim of improving the ongoing resourcing, compliance management, quality delivery, collaboration and pathways planning for pre accredited training.
The project consultants recognised the importance and value to the individual, organisations and the communities they serve, of effective communication, collaboration and sustainable systems and practices. Central to the establishment and success of a CoP is a strong sense of ownership and belief in the potential benefits of better communication and knowledge management practices. Plans for, and decisions made about collaboration need to align with those of the individual providers and communities. An investigation of CoP development models, including those using Web 2.0 tools, and how best to adapt a model for each group, was an integral part of the project. It was acknowledged that the two LL networks had varying needs and while some of their characteristics and concerns would be common, there were differences that would impact on the outcomes of the project.
