Updated: Dec 22, 2020

Thanks to our membership of the General Federation of Trade Unions, our members can access a great range of courses in trade union activity. From the history of the movement to specific courses on, for example, becoming a rep, or social media and the law, these courses are an amazing resource for building our union and the movement as a whole.
