Delegate Training: the Essentials – and BEYOND!
Tuesday, 13 April, 2021 @ 9:00am – Wednesday, 14 April, 2021 @ 4:00pm AWST
Trained Union Delegates are essential to growing your Union, strengthening your workplace and achieving change.
Have you completed IEU Delegate training?
Delegates who have completed training feel more confident. Courses will be running in both weeks of the April school holidays. This two-day training will provide information, skills and confidence to be an effective Delegate and has been developed with the collaboration of the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU).
The training covers the role and responsibilities of a Delegate:
- Resolving workplace issues
- Communicating effectively with Union members and potential members
- Recruiting new IEU members
- Assisting members with workplace queries
- Empowering others and providing support
The training is a great opportunity to meet other Delegates, hear their stories and develop a network to support each other.
Attend two consecutive days in either Week One or Week Two. Morning tea and lunch will be provided. Please notify when registering of dietary requirements. Places are limited. Courses are in high demand, so book now to avoid disappointment.
Street parking only; do not park in the bays. Parking is available on either end of Knutsford Avenue, or along Francisco Street.
Whether you’re a new Delegate or a Delegate in a school heading into bargaining, or dealing with issues in your school, this course is for you.
Your facilitator will be Melanie Booth
Melanie has spent the past 36 years working for unions. Starting as a delegate in her union (then called MOA) she has experience with most aspects of representing members.
