NCOSS Member Benefits and Discounts in Partnership with Pathways Australia

NCOSS is pleased to announce a range of Member exclusive offers in partnership with Pathways Australia. Together, the partnership will focus on supporting the community sector to upskill senior leaders, managers and other staff with free, discounted, and affordable training, consultancy and more.

We have partnered with Pathways Australia because of their commitment to assist Not-For-Profit organisations to gain the skills and knowledge needed to make a difference in their organisations. The practical training programs, forums and courses offered are designed to meet the specific needs of Not-For-Profit organisations. They are facilitated by presenters who understand the Not-For-Profit sector and are experts on the topics they present.

NCOSS members who have undertaken a Pathways Australia course have spoken positively of the experience, saying it enhanced their knowledge and skills and they would recommend it to a colleague.   

Pathways Australia also provide a range of high quality and affordable consultancy services in the areas of human resources management, governance, engagement surveys, strategic planning and organisational reviews. Please see below for NCOSS Member benefits and exclusive offers.
