Trade Union Education

Tued

At the Trade Union Academy here at Central, we offer high quality training where learners achieve nationally recognised educational credits and awards through the National Open College Network (NOCN). All courses are delivered by tutors with years of trade union experience.

TUC courses encourage everyone to learn in a friendly, supportive, adult learning environment, in surroundings designated for trade union courses. Courses are offered flexibly to suit the needs of union representatives and through the traditional day release model.

At Central, we realise that for many representatives, this is a second chance to learn. A range of learning pathways has been established offering all representatives the opportunity to achieve their full potential. These include pathways to University degree courses and to the Technician Safety Practitioner grade of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). In addition, the TUC offers short courses covering a range of trade union issues including employment law, health and safety, equality and pensions.

All courses based in Nottingham are now held at our Trade Union Education Centre, Central College Nottingham, High Road, Chilwell, Beeston, Nottingham NG9 4AH.

The TUC programme aims include:

  • improving the performance of union reps at the workplace and in the union
  • promoting an understanding of trade union priorities, including equal opportunities
  • developing personal/study skills and generally improving the confidence of all those who take part
  • enabling recognition of achievement in learning through accreditation
  • enhancing the status of union reps through recognition of learning
  • contributing to lifelong learning
