This year, TUC South West have developed a unique training opportunity for a group 15 trade union members (whether activists, reps or officers), to participate in our Aspiring Leaders Programme.
The course will bring union-sponsored participants together to learn about and develop skills that will help them to lead on a project of their choosing that will bring positive changes to the world of work. From digital skills, project managing to communicating across various platforms, participants will have the chance to build their own voice in an issue affecting workers in modern Britain, as well as raise their profile within the trade union movement.
The course will be spread across July – November 2019.
The itinerary is being coordinated with the German union Ver.di who represent over 2 million workers in thousands of workplaces across the country. The itinerary will support the Leaders to build international solidarity, but also learn and understand alternative models of trade unionism, engagement and organising methods as well as make comparisons with employment laws that will add much greater depth to the learning Programme. More information will be provided as details are confirmed.
If you are a younger member of a trade union affiliated to the TUC, please complete the application form.
It can either be downloaded and emailed/posted to the TUC South West office.
Please ensure that you confirm sponsorship from your union and/or sponsoring branch prior to sending in your application as we will need the details before we can confirm applicants' success.
Don't forget the deadline to submit the form to the TUC South West is 12noon, Friday 15th June 2019.
