Communication Strategies for Schools Officers regarding Professional Development (PD) and Workplace Health and Safety (WH&S) Courses
Your Together representatives had previously raised the issue of ensuring that Schools Officers had access to and received relevant PD and WH&S training. Management advised that regional offices were keen to be part of ensuring this happened and wanted feedback from Schools Officers on what sort of PD and WH&S courses they would like offered. If members can send in your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will collate what you provide and disseminate this information back to regional offices and management.
We also received a commitment from the department that mandatory WH&S training will be rolled out across the state as soon as possible. Your representatives also sought commitment the training would be provided in work time and there should be no expectation for schools officers to have to attend training outside of work hours.
