Trade Union Training aims for a maximum of 20-22 participants for each Federation course. In selecting participants, preference is given to Federation Representatives, Women’s Contacts and Association Officers. Every effort is made to achieve a balance between primary and secondary, country and city members, and to provide access to courses to members in TAFE. Federation also aims to provide 60 per cent of places to female members.
