The Australian Trade Union Institute provides education designed by unionists, for unionists. It is the space for ongoing collaboration and research that furthers the interests of workers.

Powered by the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU), the ATUI offers flexible training both online, face-to-face, and on-demand.

In addition to providing education and training, the ATUI acts as a network for sharing ideas and strategies between unions, drawing on the wealth of knowledge and experience across the movement, as well as thought leaders from related fields, to facilitate tailored training that meets the real needs of unionists, and collaboration and research that builds the capacity of the movement as a whole.


Study Options


Face-to-face courses

Face-to-face training sessions run across Australia in various states. Meeting face-to-face is a great way to connect with fellow unionists and our educators in person.

 


Online over zoom

No matter where you’re coming from, our online training sessions will teach practical skills that take full advantage of the online learning format, adopting an interactive approach to online education.


On-demand

On-demand courses are fully-online and self-paced. Instead of attending live classes, you will have the flexibility to study when it suits you, while receiving the full benefit of 1-to-1 guidance from your educator.
