School Unions Representative Training (SURT) workshops are available for BCTF locals as a training program for union representatives, such as staff reps, PD chairs, Social Justice and Aboriginal contacts, as well as health and safety reps. Up to four
days of training is available for each local.
Health and safety workshops can either be requested as a SURT or as a tripartite, when booked by the school district. If the district is booking the workshop, it will be booked as a tripartite and billed to the district. Most BCTF workshops are suitable
for a tripartite audience—teachers, support staff, and administrative officers.
The BCTF supports student-teachers with workshops offered in both official languages and led by classroom teachers (facilitators) with special expertise and training. Workshops are three hours in length. There is no charge for these workshops.
