About Rebecca Leach

"Thank you for going above and beyond - For guiding us, inspiring us, supporting us, mentoring us and teaching us with your amazing ways. You're the best" Jolene (Community Services)

I believe that it is important that I am a reflective practitioner in order to stay current with developments in the profession and to 'sharpen the tools in my own toolbox.' To maintain and enhance my knowledge and skills I use a 70:20:10 framework. 70% of my learning and development is from experience. For over 20 years I have been experientially learning by working in leadership positions within the community services and education sectors throughout Australia (including working for the Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority, Community Services and Health Industry Skills Council, Drug and Alcohol Multicultural Education Centre, Lifeline and The Benevolent Society).

To ensure that I have current industry skills I continue to practice as a Counsellor. This includes providing evidence based counselling to children, young people, adults, couples, families and groups. In order to maintain my vocational education and training skills, I continue to develop, facilitate and assess accredited qualifications (such as the Advanced Diploma of Community Sector Management).  20% of my learning and development is from exposure. My social learning includes networking and receiving feedback, coaching, mentoring and supervision.

10% of my learning and development is from education. My formal learning has included studying a Master of Counselling and Psychotherapy, Master of Disability Studies, Graduate Diploma of Counselling, Graduate Diploma of Psychology, Graduate Certificate in Business Administration, Graduate Certificate in Disability Studies, Graduate Certificate in Suicide Prevention Studies, Bachelor of Education, Bachelor of Social Work, Advanced Diploma of Community Sector Management, Diploma of Community Education, Diploma of Community Services, Diploma of Children's Services, Diploma of Leisure and Health, Diploma of Training Design and Development, Diploma of Vocational Education and Training, Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, Certificate IV in Advocacy, Certificate IV in Aged Care, Certificate III in Aged Care, Certificate III in Alcohol and Other Drugs, Certificate III in Community Services, Certificate III in Disability, Certificate III in Mental Health and Certificate III in Youth Work. 
I hope that I can support your professional development by facilitating person centred Nuts and Bolts Workshops (and supportive eLearning and distance education) and Bec-Spoke On Site Training that meets your needs (as part of your 10% formal learning and development). I would like to provide you with ongoing support to assist in your 20% exposure learning and development (including providing you with career support and assisting you to share information with your team, organisation and sector) and 70% experiential learning and development (such as empowering you to apply knowledge and skills).
