Every UCU branch should have at least one Union Learning Rep. This course will look at your role as a Learning Rep, and how to extend the UCU organising agenda through learning. We will see the value of the role as not only a lifelong learning and recruitment opportunity, but also in terms of negotiating and bargaining on behalf of UCU members in your branch.
This course will cover the following:
- Your rights as a UCU union learning rep
- Barriers to learning and development in your workplace
- Equality issues around access to members learning and professional development
- The role of the ULR in the branch
- Where next for the branch?
