PSA Delegate Workshops

 

All PSA delegates are strongly encouraged to attend the PSA’s delegate education programme. It has been designed to give you the basic skills and information you need to be an effective delegate.

 

During 2014 we are gradually introducing changes to the program. The current programme includes a three-day introductory workshop, and three one-day workshops. Paid leave to attend some of these courses is available through EREL or workplace union education leave.

 

We will update the program again in later March 2014 for the second half of 2014 which will include a new workshop which will replace some of our existing courses.

 

There are a number of other coures which run from time to time within enterprises (organisations) to find out about these or to put forward your ideas for courses please contact your National Delegate or National Organiser. If the course listed below has a # it may be suitable for adaptation as an enterprise workshop.
