Trade Union training is free to attend. Onsite accommodation is provided and travel expenses are covered by the BDA.
This new program has been developed in conjunction with the TUC and is delivered by professional TUC tutors. The residential element of the course comprises 2 days with a 2 week break for e-learning followed by further 2 days in the classroom. It is essential that all Reps complete the new training package in order to achieve accredited recognition status. Established TU reps are also encouraged to attend to refresh their skills.
