Activist training

UNISON activists are volunteers who agree to take on one or more of the tasks that help keep the union running in the workplace or the branch. There’s a huge range of potential activist roles, as interesting and diverse as the UNISON members who do them.

UNISON training is designed to give our activists the skills you need to carry out your roles and to ensure that you can perform them with confidence. All courses are free for you to attend, although there may be a charge to your branch.
