Why take this course?
Reporting. It’s a big and necessary part of the Support Coordination role. Yet to navigate the reporting requirements and a system covered in red tape, you need time. Something that’s not always easy to come by.
This three stage practical workshop is here to save you time by effectively using reporting templates. We won’t just teach you the ‘why’ and the ‘what’ of CoS reporting — but most importantly — the ‘how’. Together, we’ll dive deep into the main elements, language and justifications for CoS reporting, giving you individual feedback and tailored discussions so you can build your confidence and efficiency.
Stage one — A two and a half hour workshop teaching you best practice and how to use reporting templates developed by our DSC experts.
Stage two — You’ll have the opportunity to submit one report template of your choice with a real (deidentified) case, then get tailored and constructive feedback from our experts.
Stage three — A 1 hour group online coaching session offering general feedback, discussing the common themes we saw in everyone’s reports and a Q&A session.

After starting out as a Physiotherapist, Lisa found her passion in complex case management and working with people with a disability to navigate their options in the 10 years prior to the NDIS roll-out. Since the rollout in NSW, Lisa's specific interest areas are working with people to gain NDIS access for the first time and planning for NDIS reviews, with a particular passion for 'translating' the complexities of the NDIS, and working with people to build their skills, capacity and knowledge about the NDIS so that they can be informed, empowered, and objective self-advocates. It's a passion that doesn’t go unrecognised: we’re talking about the winner of the award for Most Outstanding Support Coordinator at the 2022 Australian Disability Services Awards!
Annika is a perfect match for DSC with her joy for making the NDIS world simple and accessible. Arriving from Denmark just in time to see NDIS kick-off down here, she puts her human rights and philosophy background to use not just as a DSC Expert Trainer, but also as a Support Coordinator at Ablelink, specialising in housing and complex supports. When she’s not busy building capacity, Annika rolls up her sleeves in the garage where she’s building her own campervan!
