Convenor Course

  • Course Date: 28/Jul/2020
  • Location: Brisbane

Are you a new convenor who feels like they’ve been thrown in the deep end? Or an established convenor who’s wondering if your tuckshop can be made more efficient? The convenor course is here to help!

QAST has developed this convenor course to give you the skills and confidence to run a successful tuckshop, and where to access support when you need it. The course will introduce you to a range of information, tools and templates that can be personalised to your tuckshop, to help everything run smoothly. This includes items like daily schedules, stocktake templates, pricing templates and more! There will also be group discussion on a range of scenarios from what to do if students arrive without lunch, to negotiating with suppliers, to reporting back to employers effectively.

What will be covered?

There are three key sections to this course;

  • Designing your menu
  • Running an organised kitchen
  • Working with your school community

Of course, we can’t cover everything in one day but from our years of experience, we’ve determined the key topics to help you. The course will be especially useful for new convenors, but even established staff will pick up new ideas. You’ll also get the opportunity to share ideas and network with other convenors attending this course.

Is there any assessment?

There is no assessment to complete with this course, so that we can maximise time for learning and group discussion.

You will be encouraged to develop a personalised action plan for your tuckshop as we work through the days topics. QAST staff are always happy to provide ongoing support for members in implementing these actions.

How long does the course run?

The course runs from 9:00am until 4:30pm.

How much does the course cost?

This course is $180 per person, including GST. It is available to QAST members ONLY.
