All departments may allow TAs to use this three-hour session as their paid mandatory training (per the collective agreement between C.U.P.E. 3902 and the University of Toronto). If this is the case, please read the information on Paid Training carefully. If you have any questions, please contact services.ta@utoronto.ca.

Departments may also choose to send returning TAs to the break-out portion of this training session in order to fulfill the tutorial training requirement. TAs with subsequent appointments can fill out this form, indicating they are returning TAs. They must select the appropriate tutorial training category for the break-out session.
