MISP in Australian Schools

The first MISP courses to be held in Australia were conducted in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney in early 2005 by two MISP trainers from the UK.  there are now two MISP Trainers and over 150 Instructors across Australia, with more being trained each year.

As more people are able to access the program it is being taken up by an increasing number of schools, with some Instructors also teaching it in other settings.  Use the links below or in the menu bar to read some stories from schools and other groups using the program.  Please re-visit our site from time to time as we add more stories and pictures from across Australia.
