Workshops for 2018

Keep an eye on the website for further information such as dates and costs.

There will be workshops for facilitators only, and facilitators with their teams to work on presentation and spontaneous challenge solving skills. We have found that coming to a workshop with other schools have been beneficial for the students to help learn from each other.

Tailored workshops for individual schools can be organised. Please contact us via: https://tom.edu.au/Contact

Regional workshops will also be offered, and tailored for your needs.
