Organising Academy

Share this page

The main aim of the TUC's Organising Academy is to support unions to build organisational capacity and run effective campaigns.

This is done primarily through our training programme for union officers, organisers and leaders.

We also continue to offer our longstanding Diploma in Organising and a dedicated award for union support staff to enable them to contribute to the organising and campaign work undertaken by their unions. Our programme is delivered in partnership with Ruskin College.

If you would like more information on how we can support your union, please contact the TUC Organising Academy – [email protected]
