About the course
The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity. The purpose of this session is for Union Reps and Deputy Reps to connect with the SSTUWA during the COVID 19 restrictions. This online event does not replace current face-to-face Union Rep training offered through the SSTUWA but will benefit any new Reps, particularly those working in regional and remote areas.
The module will guide Union Reps and Deputy Reps to explore:
- The SSTUWA Role and Structure
- The Role of the Union Rep
- Support for the Union Rep.

Trade union training leave - Schools
Members in schools and TAFE colleges are eligible for five days of paid leave per year to attend trade union training (TUT).
To comply with TUT leave requirements applicants must:
- Submit applications to DoE/principal four weeks prior to the event.
- Provide DoE/principal with a printed copy of the course program attached to this form.
- Be nominated by the SSTUWA. See “nominated audience” on the attached course program.
The school will not be charged for the salary of the person attending trade union training - this is covered by the DoE. However, if a relief teacher is required, this is funded through the school's one line budget.
For school administration
When processing TUT leave applications:
- Ensure staff attending training have selected TUT Leave in HRMIS.
- Project code 1471 will be generated within the payment system.
