The trade union movement needs more women ambitious to take on leading roles and speak up for working people. The TUC North West Women in Leadership programme is designed for women who are interested in playing a larger role in the running of their union at workplace or official levels.
The programme is flexible to suit busy women and will develop leadership skills and build confidence, whatever role you hold or want to hold. The programme is likely to be over-subscribed so make sure you get your application in early with support from your union.
The course will cover content areas such as leading and inspiring teams, barriers to leadership, confidence and assertiveness, giving briefings, making presentations and much more. It will be delivered with a hybrid approach, one meeting will take place online and two of the meetings will be held in-person.
There will be a combination of individual working, group discussions, online contributions and project work along with guest speakers and opportunities to contribute to trade union conferences and events.
You will be given all that you need to complete each element of the course with tutor and peer support. Previous participants on the Women in Leadership programme have found far reaching benefits, including a support network made with the rest of the group.
The course is supported by Trade Union Education tutors and TUC North West staff and will take place on the following dates:
Wednesday 06 October 2021 - in-person session
Wednesday 13 October 2021 - online session
Wednesday 20 October 2021 - in-person session
The course will then be concluded with a visit to the Houses of Parliament in London to meet some of our North West women MPs.
The cost of the course is FREE. However, any expenses incurred by individuals should be claimed from your union.
If you would like any more information about the course, would like to apply or have any questions, please contact the lead tutor Diana Warren on firstname.lastname@example.org.
