Welcome to our online learning hub!
Adopting a social enterprise strategy, all our income is invested back into developing and delivering our educational events, resources and other initiatives aimed at the prevention, early detection and management of mental illness as well as promoting and improving mental, social and emotional wellbeing among young people.
Generation Next achieves this with an extremely small team and the generous support of other organisations. We achieve this with only one (!) salaried staff! Our Founder and CEO works on a purely voluntary basis so does not draw a wage or any other financial benefit from Generation Next.
We receive generous and crucial pro bono support from the healthcare education and event management company Healthed. All Generation Next educational events are coordinated by Healthed’s education and event management specialists staff who work on a pro bono basis.
Despite our streamlined and grassroots, social enterprise approach, Generation Next runs on a small loss on a year-on-year basis. This is covered by generous donations from a small number of corporate supporters and partner organisations. Our objective is to maximise access and learning, and feedback from our stakeholders consistently demonstrates that their budgets cannot sustain significant increases of educational event costs. It is thanks to the generous support of partner organisations and entities that we are able to ‘fill this gap’ and continue our work on a yearly basis, as well as undertake new projects that increase the impact and reach of our work.
Naturally, we welcome any potential corporate sponsors or donors to contact us! Further contributions will enable us to further develop our strategies and activities, increasing the benefit for our young people and the broader community.
You can reach us at 1300 797 794 or email@example.com.

I'm a TQI registered teacher, how can I gain my professional learning?
Please scroll down this page for more detailed instructions. All the sessions that have been accredited for TQI are now categorised at https://pd.generationnext.com.au/collections/tqi. As part of the course completion, TQI accredited teachers will need to submit the short form 'TQI Registered Teacher Documentation' that is contained in the accredited course (upon submission, a copy will be emailed for your records). Submitting the form indicates that you would like to have the time added to your 2-hour block of TQI hours. Accreditation will be uploaded upon completion of 2 hours worth of accredited sessions. This allows teachers to choose their own program that has the most relevance to their own teaching practice. Each week, TQI are notified for all registered teachers who have completed two hours of learning as indicated by the time on the course certificate. Every two hours of learning you complete (triggered by completing the 'TQI Registered Teacher Documentation'form) will be applied to your TQI register. For example, if you have completed 2 x 45 minute sessions and a 30 minute session, gained your certificate of completion and submitted your 'TQI Registered Teacher Documentation' form, 2 hours of learning will be applied, this will occur again once you have accumulated the next 2 hours of learning.
