Since 2019, the TUI has run online courses for Union representatives in collaboration with the City of Glasgow College Trade Union Centre. The venture has been a great success, with four cohorts - 100 members in total - having completed the course, which addresses key topics such as the role of representatives, how to access resources and how to deal with disciplinary and grievance procedures.
The course is fully accredited and the successful participants are awarded a level 5 Certificate in Trade Union Studies. To date, participants have come from across the various sectors that the TUI represents members in and in feedback members have expressed the enjoyment and satisfaction they got from doing the course and how it gave them extra confidence in fulfilling their various roles in the TUI from member of the Workplace Committee to Branch Officer.
The TUI is now inviting applications for a limited number of places for next year’s course which is scheduled to commence in October 2023. For further information or to enrol contact John O’Reilly at firstname.lastname@example.org
