Trade Union Studies | Adult Learning Wales

 

 

What is TU studies and who is it for?

Our courses give union reps the skills, knowledge and confidence needed to continue doing a great job. On successful completion of our courses, reps will get nationally recognised educational credits.

We work in partnership with the major trade unions in Wales to deliver their core programmes to new and existing reps. It is a fantastic opportunity to not only gain all the skills and knowledge needed to be effective union reps, but also a chance to meet other reps and experienced tutors and officials.

Working with Unions:

  • WTUC
  • Unison
  • Unite
  • CWU
  • PCS
  • GMB

In the last year alone (2020-21) over 400 learners have engaged in union learning.

Testimonial: "I wanted to learn more about health and safety at work and how being a Unison Health and Safety rep can improve conditions in the workplace for members. I feel that my aims have been met by the course."
