About This Course

Organiser Pathway Level 3 is aimed at Organisers with at least two to three years’ experience.

It is designed to equip you with the practical skills needed to excel in the vital role you play within the movement. Throughout the course, you will develop critical thinking to lead the implementation of systemic improvements in the workplace.

You will also gain an understanding of the Work, Health and Safety system as a useful framework to identify and implement workplace improvements; as well as knowledge around how WHS legislation provides the foundation for cultivating equity and diversity at work.

In part two of the course, you’ll learn about reframing the economy, how to plan and run an induction, and methods to achieve lasting change through campaigning and organising efforts. Six weeks after completion of the course, there will be a recall session via Zoom to monitor your progress and share stories.
