Through a series of six two-hour evening sessions, participants will develop their skills and confidence to step up as leaders in their Unions and beyond.
The programmes will bring together cohorts of 20 Union reps and activists to learn and share expertise and experience. The programmes will provide the groups with the opportunity to:
- Explore their own approach to leadership and what authentic leadership could look like
- Develop a deeper understanding of the Trade Union movement including employment law, structures, and organisational and industrial challenges
- Develop a network of supportive leaders in the Trade Union movement which enables further leadership development
The LGBT+ leadership programme will begin on 8 February and the Disabled Workers leadership programme on 29 March.
Please contact john.shortell@theMU.org if you would like to nominate yourself to take part in the leadership schools by Friday 25 November.
More information on the schools is on the TUC site:
