The awards are a unique opportunity to recognise and celebrate the work of extraordinary individuals and organisations that go above and beyond in assisting new migrants and refugees to settle into our community.

If you know someone who deserves to win, one quick and simple nomination is all it takes.
Nominations can be made online at http://www.migrationcouncil.org.au/awards/ or call (02) 6162 0361 for any further enquiries.

The winners of each category will be announced at a Gala Dinner, held in the Great Hall of Parliament House in March 2014.
RMIT Short Course - Forensic Interviewing, February 2014, Melbourne
This interviewing course is quite unique as it is based on the Enhanced Cognitive Interviewing techniques considered the cutting edge in UK and European policing. (it's gradually being introduced in Australian police forces). As has been often discussed, legal practitioners and members of the judiciary simply don't get access to this kind of interviewing/questioning training except perhaps as a one day, and more usually one hour, workshop.
Online enrolment form available here.
