What trainees say about our training sessions:

  • ‘Possibly the best structured and most professionally delivered training course I have ever attended.’
  • ‘Excellent program. I have been working in tertiary education over the past year and I think this was some of the best training in facilitating small group learning I have received’
  • ‘I was so amazed with the training, how much practical training was present and how ready I feel now to take the class, even though I was getting nervous about it before training. Thank you very much.’

face to face workshops

Face to face workshops are restricted to 16 participants to ensure adequate social distancing. Attendees must be fully vaccinated and wear a mask.

If you’re interested in attending a face to face course, contact Darcie Funk on training@primaryethics.com.au

online courses

Online training course participants need to be able to commit to attend Zoom sessions at the same time every week, usually for a period of 5 weeks, though timetables vary.

The course commences with a 1 hour introductory session. For the following four sessions, there is a 2 hour Zoom session with a Primary Ethics trainer. In preparation for that weekly session, participants must complete some self-paced e-learning and contribute to an online forum (these two activities combined will take approximately 1 hour per week.)

The next courses will take place on: 

  • Tuesdays/Fridays, 9.30-11.30am, starts 25 January, then 28, 1,4,8 February (group 140)
