**COVID-19 PANDEMIC**           CHANGES TO UNION TRAINING

Your Union is committed to continuing to provide training for our members.

We have begun to re-introduce face to face training, which will be conducted in line with NSW Health guidelines.

Please note that the training team may change face to face courses to online workshops (or vice versa) at short notice due to the changing COVID-19  situation, or member interest.

We will continue to offer the 3 hour workshops, delivered via video conference. These workshops will run from 10am – 1.30pm, unless otherwise stated.   We are also offering some one hour webinars, which will be labelled as such. Webinars start at 12pm, unless otherwise stated.

  • The workshops are half day, so you will be released on Special Leave for half day only. 
  • For workshops and webinars you will need access to an internet connection, a device with audio and video capabilities (phone, laptop, desktop computer).
  • If you are using a phone/tablet, you will need to download the Zoom app.
  • You might want to check your system to make sure it will work.
  • We will provide more instructions in emails closer to the course date.

Please see the ONLINE COURSE SCHEDULE below for Workshop and Webinar details and dates.

Thanks so much for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.

Please stay safe.

In Solidarity
