Training Leave Entitlements
If you are uncertain what your leave entitlements for training are call the union office on 1800 177 244 or email our Education and Development Team via firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do have access to leave it is important to note that this leave only applies if you attend the training. If you cannot attend training for some reason, for example illness, your Industrial Relations Education Leave does not stand and you will need to apply for sick leave instead.
We ask all participants to let us know of any special dietary requirements as lunch will be provided for you at our course. We will try to accommodate the needs for all participants however if we cannot we will notify you.
What to bring
When attending training we ask that you bring a notepad and pen if possible. Some courses contain a pre-course activity; where this is the case you will be sent details of this with your registration confirmation.
Otherwise we simply ask that you bring yourselves, any questions and your availability for the whole day (this is why you are on leave from work).
If participants have mobile phones we ask that you use break-times to return messages and that phones are turned off or on “silent” during training so that everyone can get the most out of the course.
