There is also a focus on issues and advocacy that extend beyond a worksite and the role of unions in campaigning for changes to improve conditions and the health system.

You will review and update your Action Plan with a key focus on building the number of active union members, union workplace culture, voice and influence.

Worksite Representative Stage 3 Course 

This course is for those who have completed Stage 2 and have maintained being active in their workplace. Worksite Representatives will be invited to apply for the limited number of places on the Stage 3 program.

Participants in the level 3 program are required to conduct a SWOT analysis of your workplace prior to coming to the course, which you will receive information and guidance on.

The skills and knowledge covered within this course are building on to those introduced in previous courses. There is also a focus on looking at the broader picture outside of our organisation and understanding the work of unions and organisations supporting the union.

You will also be reviewing previous action plans as well as developing new ones to work on at your workplace.
