Education Course Enrolment

Please ensure that your Regional Officer has been notified of your election/union position as this helps alleviate any problems at a later date which may delay your application.

The courses that are delivered by the education department are open to all Unite activists. 


Once we have received your application form we will confirm in writing whether or not you have been allocated a course place. It is up to you to secure your paid release. Employment legislation entitles you to payment of wages etc for training you undertake that is connected with your trade union duties (negotiating, representing people etc.) However, if you have been told by your employer that you won't receive paid release, you must raise the issue with your regional officer before you attend the course.

The education department is not responsible for obtaining your paid release. Course bookings will be made on a 'first-come - first-served basis'

A no-deal Brexit needs to be taken off the table and a deal secured which ensures an on-going customs arrangement and tariff free, frictionless trade secured."
