Victoria daily news update: Government rules out a new public holiday, more training to enter mental health workforce and the latest on Covid cases

A quick summary of all the Victorian news you need to know on Monday 11 April. The deputy premier, James Merlino, said the number of Victorians enrolled in a Certificate IV in Mental Health had increased by 427% since it was added to the free Tafe program in 2020. “I’m just so pleased to see that the Victorian community has responded,” Merlino said. Paid family violence leave has been included in all new Victorian public sector enterprise agreements, following the state’s royal commission into the issue in 2015. In its submission to the FWC review, the Victorian government said about 320,000 public sector employees across nine departments and 280 public sector agencies have access to 20 days of paid leave each year.
