*ORIC may pay for the training including accommodation, meals and reasonable travel costs for participants to attend their closest training.
ORIC does not pay sitting fees and cannot provide child care.
Corporations/employers may wish to reimburse participants for work time loss and ORIC can provide evidence of participant attendance at the workshop if required.

Things to think about

This is residential training and will be held in a central location. Usually the training room and accommodation are in the same venue.

Accommodation will be on a twin share basis. We hope that people will be able to support each other while away from home.

Applications from corporation employees must be supported and signed by the CEO and a director of the corporation.

Participants will also need support from their family or community.

Who can attend?

Applications are welcome from store management committees only (not store managers).

Store management committees can nominate two people and a reserve.

This training is not for store managers or staff who work in stores.

Other requirements

Participants need to be committed to the training, have a sense of fun and be willing to work with and learn from others.

It is expected that participants will show respect to themselves, other participants and the trainer. Participants must sign a learning agreement with ORIC.

How to apply

Seek the support of your corporation and family.

There aren't any workshops of this type scheduled for 2017–18 but you can email training@oric.gov.au to express interest in having training organised for your corporation.
