The Federation conducts a range of training courses each year for members. Core Courses are training activities offered every year as a regular part of the program. Campaign Courses are designed to meet the specific needs of particular groups of members, or in response to a particular issue.
Training is delivered face to face and virtually. All face to face training is run in line with the NSW Teachers Federation's COVID-Safe Plan and relevant NSW Health advice of the day.
Trade Union Training (TUT) is responsible for the coordination, planning and delivery of the Union's professional development program. This program is led by the TUT Officer Anna Uren and supported by the Training Unit Administration Team.

These are training activities offered every year as a regular part of the program.
These are designed to meet the specific needs of particular groups of members, or in response to a particular issue.
Following changes to NESA's registration of professional learning at the end of 2020, the Federation (along with over 750 other providers) is no longer an accredited provider of professional learning.
Some sessions across the Federation's Training Program may be able to be recorded as Elective PD (which has replaced Teacher Identified PD). Members are encouraged to read the information on NESA's website to:
- familiarise themselves with the requirements for Elective PD
- determine the specific requirements for their own accreditation according to the end date of their current maintenance cycle.
As NESA progressively accredits PD under its priority areas, this advice may be updated if appropriate. Until such time, advice regarding specific sessions and Elective PD will be available for members attending courses, conferences, seminars and webinars. Any general questions regarding accreditation and the training program can be answered by the TUT team upon application.
