Education and training

Working people have a long history of self-improvement through their trade unions.

UNISON proudly continues this tradition with courses running throughout the year, covering campaigning, employment rights, and equalities, as well as functional skills, professional development and general skill-sharing!

It is our priority to have as diverse and suitable courses to meet all the needs of both our members and activists both new and old.

Our network of trained tutors will ensure you get the most out of a course. Speak to your Union Learning Rep about your training needs – if you don’t have one, contact your branch for info.
