As long as you are a union representatives and have completed the TUC Union Representatives: Stage 1 Course (or your union's equivalent), you can apply.
There are no course fees for union reps from unions affiliated to the TUC. Travel expenses will not be covered by the TUC; please speak to your union in the first instance.
Union representatives who wish to attend TUC courses in working time should first ask their employer for time off with pay. The Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 and the Safety Representatives and Safety Committee Regulations 1977 give accredited union and safety representatives a legal right to reasonable time off with pay to attend courses approved by the TUC or their union. Guidance towards establishing what constitutes reasonable time off can be found in the ACAS Code of Practice (pdf).
Representatives who find difficulty in obtaining paid time off to attend TUC courses should seek assistance from their senior union representative or full time union officer.
