Our virtual steward course delivers the same learning outcomes as the face-to-face Stage 1 workplace representatives course aimed at branch contacts and new stewards. We have transformed our classroom based course into an virtual course, delivered by an experienced TUC tutor.
This course looks at what the roles of the steward are and gives you the skills, knowledge and understanding to carry out these roles, for example recruiting members and involving them in the union and how to work with members to tackle problems at work.
- Recruiting members
- Keeping members informed
- How to raise issues in UNISON
- Proportionality and fair representation
For Stewards to be able to represent members, they will also need to complete stage 2 of this training.
This course will be accredited through East Riding College. This course is 30 hours learning in total.
The online resources will be available to download and view via a padlet.
Branch Charge: £30 per delegate
