Cath goes to the National Study Leadership Workshop


Today I went to Melbourne with 3 of my fellow leadership mates from FedUni to attend a workshop on student leadership at universities. It was really rewarding and I was proud to be able to represent FedUni as a student leader.

After the train trip to Melbourne and a quick coffee from a cafe, we went up to the City Campus of Latrobe University to meet with the other participants in the workshop and share in the fruit and danishes that were kindly provided for breakfast.

Student Leadership Conference

RyanRegistrations for the Student Leadership Conference have opened and with it so have your horizons.

Ugh. That was horribly cheesy. Poor form, Ryan. Let’s try again.

The Student Leadership Conference is coming up and you can now register for this amazing opportunity. Running on 9 & 10 October at the Mt Helen campus, this conference affords students the opportunity to further develop their leadership skills with a series of presentations, workshops and food. It’s not just for student who already consider themselves ‘leaders’, either. This conference is for anyone at all and works on building skills that you can take with you well beyond your university life. So come along.

The first day is optional (but still awesome) so if you can’t make it on the first day, that’s fine. But the second day is huuuuuuge. You get to hear from some community leaders; participate in workshops to do with politics, climate change, organisations and more; and even choose a specific social project to get involved in. All the things! It’s a full day too, so you get your money’s worth.

Whoa! Yes, okay, I said money. Hang on, hang on. You only might have to pay it. It’s $50, but you might be granted a bursary if you receive Centrelink payments, you’ll just need to provide permission for the uni to contact Centrelink. There’s also food and a secret dinner. Not as in, so secret that you have to hope you stumble upon it, secret as in the location will be provided by an agent via dead-drop. Or you’ll just get the location closer to the date. Probably that last one.

So if you’re super excited by that (and who wouldn’t be) you can find the program, look at the workshop session and register for the conference here.

If you have any questions at all, contact the Overseer (not his actual title), Luke Icely from Student Connect at or 03 5327 6867. He’ll definitely be more eloquent and informative than me.
