Our education and outreach program is specifically designed to address the issues that young workers face when heading into the workplace for the first time, including:
YOUR RIGHTS AT WORK
This module allows students to develop their knowledge of employment relations, workplace rights and minimum standards.
SAFE AT WORK
Students who complete this module will gain a practical understanding of Occupational Health & Safety procedures and how to keep safe at work.
BULLYING & DISCRIMINATION AT WORK
This module gives students an understanding of what constitutes workplace bullying & discrimination. Students will also gain practical tools for responding to these issues when they arise.
SOCIAL MOVEMENTS & CAMPAIGNS
Students who complete this module will learn about various strategies for creating change in their communities. Students will have the opportunity to design and implement their own campaign, guided by Young Workers Centre staff.
The Young Workers Outreach Organisers can tailor their course offerings to suit the needs of your particular school or class.
Young Workers sessions can take place at your institution or at Trades Hall, the historic home of the Victorian Trades Hall Council and the union movement.
