Working life of a musician is never static and the MU can play an important role in supporting its members by facilitating the enhancement of their existing skills or assisting them in learning new ones.

TUC Education

TUC Education offers a range of courses for union members, Stewards and Health and Safety Representatives, which are wholly or partly online and provide access to the same accredited courses available in the classroom.

MU members who wish to attend TUC courses during working hours should first ask their employer for time off with pay. Should any member experience difficulty in obtaining paid time off, MU Officials are available to assist them in this matter.

GFTU courses

The MU’s affiliation to the General Federation of Trade Unions (GFTU) enables members to participate in any of a range of free courses that are run throughout each year. The subjects covered by GFTU courses over recent years have included Dealing with Bullying, Harassment and Stress, Disability Awareness, and Leadership Skills and Risk Assessment for Health and Safety Representatives.
