About the Institute

A collaboration between the government, the Victorian Council of Social Service (VCOSS) and RMIT University, the Institute will put Victoria in the box seat ahead of significant change in the delivery of social service.

The Institute is working to:

  • DESIGN world-best education programs for the social service sector.
  • HELP TRAIN the ‘workforce of the future’.
  • RESEARCH emerging trends and opportunities in social sector reform.
  • EMPOWER not-for-profits to reorient to a global market.

It’s the first time a government, a tertiary institution and the social service sector have come together in this way.

The Institute is now in full operation following consultation and development with a cross section of sector representatives. Want to be involved? Click here.
