This course provides a minimum of 21 OCN credits at level 2 or 3.

This course is designed for union representatives who have already completed the TUC Stage 1 Union Representatives Course or its equivalent, and who have had subsequent experience as an elected union rep.

The focus of Stage 1 training is the workplace, and the skills and knowledge needed to meet initial training needs as a new union rep. The TUC Advanced Course maintains the focus on the role of elected workplace union rep. It also encourages reps to use their experience to step back and look at the bigger picture of what it means to be a union representative.

This course will help you:

  • build a broad perspective of where you fit in the scheme of things

  • build understanding of effective representation and participation, and the ability to organise and plan for it

  • build confidence in researching and using rights at work

  • broaden knowledge of collective bargaining methods and mechanisms, and the ability to use them effectively

  • develop capacity for leading on the collective agenda

  • prepare for/facilitate progression to advanced work on union issues, including advanced courses and union roles
