Branch Officer Training Weekend 27 to 29 May

thumbnail of BRANCH OFFICERS WEEKEND FLYER (3rd PROOF)After two years absence our Branch Officer Training Weekend is back and will take place on 27th – 29th May in the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel in Clydebank.

We are planning to hold most of the UNISON Scotland Branch Officer training over one weekend.

This residential event involves getting together on Friday night and breaking into course groups on Saturday morning before going home after lunch on Sunday, with opportunities throughout the weekend for the Branch Officers to come together.

The courses are aimed at newly elected Officers or those who want to understand more about a particular role. It may also be useful for those who have not done training for a while as materials are updated and they can share their experience with those who are new. The courses look at roles, responsibilities, and best practice for each post.
