Audience:   CUPE 15
Office Support and Technical
& Resource Support Staff

This four-session course is for individuals who would like to work in a position which includes accounting duties that are to be performed regularly (e.g. within an Elementary School or Annex).  The accounting tasks within both a school and a non-school environment will be discussed, however, the emphasis will be on school accounting. Hands-on exercises will be completed throughout the first three sessions, with some homework assigned. In the fourth session, participants will have the opportunity to write a practice accounting assessment. The instructor will then email each participant with feedback on their own assessment results.  

For each session, participants will be paid at the OSB rate to attend. A $75 deposit will be required and returned upon completion of all 4 sessions. Either cash or cheque will be accepted, and all participants are required to bring this deposit to the first session. Participants will also need to bring a small calculator or use a calculator app on their phone.  All other materials will be provided.

This course is geared towards support staff who are interested in working in school-based positions at the OSC level and require support and training directly applicable to the school-based accounting assessment administered by Human Resources.
