About the course

This new two-day course has been created for experienced delegates.  If you have previously completed Union Representative Training Level One, Women's Contact Officer Level One or our previous Union Representative Level Two course, we invite you to apply to attend this new event.

In this new course, delegates will explore effective leadership with a focus on the legal principles of consultation and applying negotiation skills to a range of scenarios including the School Workload Advisory Committee.

Please note: SSTUWA may fund travel and accommodation expenses for currently elected delegates outside the metropolitan area.  Each regional application will be assessed by the Education and Training Coordinator for funding approval.



On completion of the course Union Representatives will have:

  • Explored leadership practices to assist them to empower, engage and recruit members.
  • An understanding of the legal principles and rights of members to consult and/or be consulted.
  • Participated in scenarios to practice skills and develop strategies in negotiation.
  • Applied a range of strategies that promote collaborate decision-making and positive approaches to dispute resolution at the school level.
  • Confidence to initiate and participate in negotiation processes to resolve issues at the workplace.
