This introductory course on tutoring methods is aimed primarily at branch activists who want to use education methods to run organising-focused branch-based training for members.

Activists will need to complete both this course and the UNISON ‘Equalities for Tutors’ course to become UNISON lay tutors.

On completing this course activists will understand:

  • Teaching and learning approaches appropriate for trade union education
  • How to run a simple group-based activity
  • How equality and diversity issues relate to learners’ needs in an educational setting
  • How learners benefit from a group learning process
  • How tutoring knowledge and skills can engage branch activists around union organising
  • How to develop their tutoring skills and knowledge

This face-to-face training will take place at UNISON Regional Centre, Quayside House. This is a non-residential course. 

Branch Charge: £90 per delegate
