Training and Development with TOMNET

TOMNET’s Training and Development program is available to the following groups:

TOMNET Members
TOMNET Volunteers
Mens groups, including rural mens groups
Older persons organisations
Community organisations associated with men
Professional staff of government and non-government organisations


Flexibility is a feature of the Training & Development program. Modules and topics can be selected as required. Formal or informal presentations are based on adult learning principles – from PowerPoint presentations to round table discussions. Module time slots can range from 1 – 4 hours and the level of content remains variable according to types of participants. Through consultation with interested groups the program is negotiable.

1. Internal Training & Development – Men’s groups

Mens groups are given opportunity to address selected modules or topics of the Training & Development program, or other areas of particular interest to the men. This approach usually involves discussion groups of one or two hours duration. Other arrangements can be negotiated. Generally, the Older Mens Issues module is the primary focus.

2. Internal Training & Development – Community Workers

Professional and lay community workers in government and non-government organisations who work directly or indirectly with men/older men are able to receive presentations or participate in workshops in line with the Training & Development program. Of particular relevance are topics from the Older Mens Issues Module. Sessions are negotiable in terms of content and time.

3. External Training & Development – Living Works

TOMNET is especially interested in suicide prevention and intervention and works closely with Lifeline Darling Downs. TOMNET has expertise in delivering ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) workshops, two-day training on suicide first-aid. SafeTALK workshops are also conducted with Lifeline, and designed to raise suicide alertness in the community. TOMNET also promotes and encourages all community members to address suicide-related issues.
