Welcome to our newly trained activists from across regions 3, 4 and 6 who participated in our recent Train the Trainer event in Ottawa.
The training included adult education theory and techniques, and gave participants an opportunity to practice and hone their facilitation skills as labour educators and activists.
Throughout the session there were comments from our member participants not only regarding how much they enjoyed the training, but also how much they appreciated being in a learning environment with members from multiple regions. This allowed members to network, learn, and build solidarity with OPSEU/SEFPO activists they normally wouldn’t have an opportunity to meet and engage with.
Region 4 RVP, Melissa Coenraad and EBM, Chrissy Tremblay dropped-by to say a few words to our members, observed part of the training, and shared their knowledge with the participants. Region 4 EBM, Veronica Attard participated in the course and also made sure the hospitality logistics ran smoothly. Thanks to Region 4 for their fabulous hospitality, and thanks to all of the RVPs, EBMs, members and staff who all made this unique learning experience a reality.
