COAT’s Decision Writing Workshop is designed to improve decision writing skills through analysis, discussion and rewriting aspects of reasons for decision.  The workshop provides participants with practical tools and tips for better decision writing. It is highly interactive and features small group exercises.

Topics include:

  • – preparing and planning reasons for decisions
  • – structuring reasons for decisions
  • – writing decisions that are clear, comprehensive, and persuasive, and
  • – getting started and keeping going.

The inaugural course was launched in August 2018 and  an in-house course was delivered in early September 2019 in Perth, facilitated by experienced tribunal members and writers, with excellent feedback. We have received a number of expressions of interest for the next available course which will be hosted in Sydney CBD Thursday 12 & Friday 13 March 2020. Cost $795.00 plus GST.
