Australian Institute of Management Training


VCOSS and the Australian Institute of Management (AIM) have partnered to create a range of training opportunities for VCOSS members. 

AIM is Australia’s largest professional management organisation with offices across Australia. Formed in 1941 as a not-for-profit association, AIM’s mission is “To enhance the capabilities of Managers and their Organisations”. 

AIM and VCOSS share a commitment to resourcing community sector organisations so that they can be as strong and sustainable as possible.

“The AIM training was an opportunity to learn new, and refresh existing, communication techniques. The format of the session, and the opportunities to practice within groups, was a great way to reinforce and practice the techniques presented.”

Free training

Each month we offer a limited number of free training opportunities to the staff (and volunteers where appropriate) of VCOSS member organisations (categories 1-5).

Please note: Current opportunities have been filled and no further applications are being accepted. Future opportunities will be listed on this page. 

“The training was fantastic! The trainer was knowledgeable and engaging, we participated in lots of relevant, practical activities based on the work and issues we are currently facing.”
