Each year AUPE holds their Advanced Labour School. Our next school is scheduled March 10-14, 2019 in Jasper. The courses are intended for members that have taken AUPE core courses and are active in their component.
Next year will be AUPE's Centennial as it will be 100 years since AUPE's predecessor Civil Service Association of Alberta (CSA) was formed. Labour School 2019 will focus on AUPE's history and how we have come to where we are today. While Labour School courses focus on a diverse topics and education, members will have an opportunity to learn more about our history throughout the school. AUPE members who meet the requirements, apply and are selected to attend, will have the opportunity to learn, celebrate, and share the history of AUPE and the ways working people continue to make history.
The courses for Advanced Labour School 2019 are:
- Arts in Labour History
- Advanced Occupational Health & Safety
- Beyond Bullying (formerly Mutual Respect)
- Continuing Education for Stewards

- Talking Union
All course descriptions and prerequisites for each course can be found here. Please note prerequisites and required positions must be met at time of application.
