Trade Union Education

Trade union education is one of the largest adult education programmes in the UK and BECTU members have the option of attending:


Union education is informed by our values of solidarity, democracy, fairness, justice and respect for difference - please check out our Equality & Diversity policy 


Discussion and debate are the key tools of trade union education, so your contribution and views will be encouraged and respected. Our training methods are firmly grounded in educational theory, they are effective and participatory.


We are building a community of skilled, articulate, critical & confident union representatives and our courses are designed to achieve this.

Application is straightforward so please go to the section on 'how to apply'  to find out what to do next.
