Branch Education

The Manchester College and UNISON North West Region both provide a large suite of courses which you as a member or activist can access for free via the Manchester branch.

If you are looking to become a steward in your work place this is a great place the start – you can attend either a 5 day or 10 day course which will give the knowledge and accreditation to support your co-workers. We also will support and train you via our team of experienced full time branch officers.

There are follow on courses if you want to specialise in areas such as the law at work, mental health and challenging racism. You also get to meet members of UNISON and other trade unions to discuss issues which affect all workplaces. Some courses provide you with qualifications which are useful if you’re looking to pursue a career in trade unionism.
