The Commission will be running a series of online workshops on the Zoom platform throughout 2021. If you are a NSW public official, you can register your interest in attending. Each workshop has a specific target audience and eligibility criteria. If you would like to attend one of these workshops, please complete this suitability questionnaire to work out which workshops most suits your needs and register your interest in attending. Once you have submitted your expression of interest it will be assessed and you will be notified when a place is available for you to attend a workshop.

To register, please complete the suitability questionnaire and expression of interest here.

The following workshops will be offered on various dates throughout the year:

Frequently asked questions about open workshops

I am not a NSW public official. Can I attend a workshop?

Generally not, but depending on your circumstances an exception may be granted.

What happens if I apply but don’t get in?

We will advise you as soon as the next round of workshops is open for registration, however, you will need to register again.

What happens after I register for a workshop?

You will receive notification of your registration by email. Your application will be assessed against other applicants and our elegibility and selection criteria. Places will be allocated and you will be notified if you have been successful or not. Commission staff may contact you to discuss your application before making a decision.

What if I can’t make it on the day?

We understand that plans change and that you may not be able to attend. Because our workshops are popular and places are limited, we often have a waiting list of people who would like to attend. Please notify us as soon as possible if you cannot attend so that we can try to fill your place. You may also wish to nominate a colleague to attend in your place.

If you fail to tell us that you cannot attend, your place will be wasted and someone else will also miss out. Failure to attend without good reason may result in us refusing to offer you a place in a future workshop.

Will I miss anything if I leave early?

Yes, you will. Our workshops cover a lot of issues and usually end very close to the advertised time. You may miss something important if you leave early. Please do not apply if you know you will not be able to stay for the whole day so we can give the place to someone who can.

Do I have to bring lunch or refreshments?

No. We normally provide tea and coffee on arrival plus morning/afternoon tea and lunch if the session spans lunchtime. Special dietary needs can be accommodated in most cases.

Will I get a certificate or statement of attendance?

No, the ICAC is not a registered training organisation (RTO) and does not provide certificates or statements of attainment or attendance. Should your employer require proof of your attendance, please send us their contact details and we will confirm with them directly.
