Staff are welcome to attend sessions offered on any campus. We try to balance and alternate sessions between ML and JO. You may need to travel to another campus to find a session that fits your schedule. When we can arrange minimum numbers, we will add a session at the SW campus. If you are from the SW campus and can’t attend a Perth on-campus session, please contact CLT.

Online PDCs typically only add enrolments at the beginning of the month it is offered, however in some circumstances you can be added during the month. Please email CLT to arrange this.

On-campus workshops have participant maximums. You will be added to a waitlist. There is no maximum for online PDCs.

On-campus workshops have participant minimums. If the minimum number of people have not enrolled to ensure a meaningful learning experience, another workshop will be scheduled, and you will be notified. There is no minimum for online PDCs.

Each School has their own time requirements and schedule for this, however if you need additional time, email the facilitator to arrange an extension.
