UNISON training is designed to give our activists the skills needed to carry out their roles and to ensure that they can perform them with confidence. All courses are free for you to attend, although there may be a charge to your branch.
UNISON training creates a framework that unites all UNISON activists, providing knowledge and skills for new activists to allow them to become pro-active and also re-energising our existing activists.
UNISON education and training is vital to help improve workers’ rights and to deliver UNISON campaigns to improve pay and conditions, make workplaces safer and promoting equalities.
This year there is a mix of in-person and online events, along with a variety of options for participating in Organising Stewards and Health and Safety courses.

What to expect
UNISON courses are friendly and informal, and designed on the principle that everybody has equal rights to participate in, benefit from, and contribute to them. Participants will often work together in small groups. There are no tests or exams, and learners will not be lectured to or suddenly called on to give answers.
