Growing together- the CPSU Victoria's Learning Program

Our union has an extensive learning program to engage and support members and delegates across the Victorian public sector workforce protect their rights at work.

We're committed to building a strong and capable network of delegates and members through offering health and safety representative & delegates courses. We offer an additional wide range of workshops and learning events that are interesting and accessible to all members.

After participating in our workshops, members are better equipped to achieve equality, dignity, transparency and respect in our workplaces and understand their rights & entitlements.

We employ dedicated Health and Safety experts, and experienced Educators, Organisers and Facilitators to deliver sessions for members.
