Teaching Assistants at McMaster University are required to complete paid training to do their jobs. This year, there is the opportunity for some of that training to take place in-person, on the McMaster campus, on the morning of September 6th or September 11th.

This workshop reviews what it means to be a CUPE Local 3906 Unit 1 member and covers different aspects of professionalism to set TAs up for success at McMaster.

Registration for the in-person training is required, and spaces are available on a first-come, first-serve basis:
