New training on QCAT coming soon
Following on from the tenancy law workshops, we have received many requests to run training on QCAT. In response, Q Shelter will be running the following training, starting in Brisbane in November, and to be scheduled for regional locations during 2016.
Representing your organisation at QCAT
Do you need to represent your social housing organisation at the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT)? This one day professional development workshop will explore issues related to collecting and presenting evidence at the Tribunal and then implementing the outcomes.
Through the review of actual cases and your own examples, we will provide a practical perspective of:
- how you can prepare to effectively represent your organisation at QCAT
- what happens when you attend the Tribunal
- what happens afterwards - follow up actions and implementation of the results of the hearing.
This workshop is for all social housing workers who represent their organisations at QCAT. Training will be provided by Margaret Ponting Consulting.
Check our website in the coming weeks for details of dates and locations, and please email Jane.West@qshelter.asn.au
if you would like to be notified once dates and venues have been finalised.
