The restrictions applied by the COVID-19 pandemic mean that all VCAT hearings will continue to be held over the phone and by Zoom for longer hearings, for at least the next few months.

This two and a half-hour on-line workshop will help to ensure that you are properly prepared to present confidently and effectively at a phone or Zoom VCAT hearing.  Delivered using the Zoom platform, the workshop allows delegates to become familiar and more confident with using the software in a safe environment.

This on-line workshop will address:

  • Preparing for a virtual VCAT appearance
  • VCAT protocols and processes in the virtual environment
  • Making the right impression
  • Communicating effectively via Zoom and Phone
  • Maximising the potential of Zoom software
  • Orders of Possession/Termination
  • Adjournments, Withdrawals and Warrants of Possession
  • The impact of the Human Rights Charter

The workshop would be suitable for:

Anyone preparing and presenting at VCAT by phone or Zoom
