Trade Union Education in London
Trade Union Education
TUC Education is the TUC's training organisation for workplace reps and union officers. It has an unrivalled reach into Britain's workplaces to provide education and training for workplace representatives. TUC Education aims to build the capacity of union reps to perform at the workplace and in the union, develop greater understanding of trade union policies and priorities, including equal opportunities, enhance study skills and personal confidence for all those who take part, make learning visible through accreditation and stimulate commitment to learning and progression.
TUC Education develops and provides student materials for all TUC courses. To make sure they are up-to-date, courses are regularly revised and rewritten with the active involvement of practising trade union studies tutors and TUC policy experts.
Since 1979, the law has entitled union reps to paid time-off to attend TUC or union training courses. If you are a:
- union workplace rep/shop steward
- union health and safety rep or a
- union learning rep
The core sources of those legal rights to facility time are:
- The Trade Union and Labour Relations Act 1992 (section 168)
- The Safety Representatives and Safety Committees Regulations 1977
