Welcome to White Cloud Professionalisation
We are passionate about the professional development of the New Zealand disability workforce, and we believe in the need for individuals, within the workforce, to develop their professional identities through reflective thinking, in and on practice, as an essential part of this process.
Disability Workforce Development
We offer the New Zealand disability workforce opportunities to practice and develop skills and confidence engaging in reflective thinking about themselves and their experiences in relation to their role.
In addition to the acquisition and development of sector relevant knowledge and practical skills and having an understanding of sector and organisational values and expectations, it is essential that the workforce develops skills reflecting upon own beliefs, attitudes, values, intentions, skills, knowledge and experiences in relation to their role – developing a professional identity.
The development of professional identity within the disability workforce is crucial. Possessing self-awareness supports the ability to understand the complexities of relationships with people supported and other relevant stakeholders, and it supports the ability to practice in accordance with professional standards.
