This Resource Kit aims to provide straightforward and practical guidance, tools and resources to support workforce development activities and initiatives in the Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) field.

The Resource Kit comprises 14 chapters: an introduction to workforce development and 13 workforce development topics relevant to the AOD field. Each chapter contains evidence-based strategies to address a particular workforce development issue, as well as resources and tools that can be used to implement the strategies. Each chapter can be treated as a stand alone section, however, as workforce development topics are inherently interrelated, links between chapters are identified throughout the Kit.

1 An Introduction to workforce development
2 Clinical supervision
3 Developing effective teams
4 Evaluating AOD projects and programs
5 Goal setting
6 Mentoring
7 Organisational change
8 Performance appraisal
9 Professional development
10 Recruitment and selection
11 Retention
12 Worker performance
13 Worker wellbeing
14 Workplace support
