Allocation of course places

To ensure the effective application of UNISON principles of Proportionality and Fair Representation places are allocated on national courses immediately after the closing date instead of on a first come first served basis. If courses are oversubscribed, selections are made on the basis of achieving Fair Representation and Proportionality, as set out in UNISON Rules, and to ensure a fair spread of participants from regions and sectors where appropriate.

Facilitation and dependent care

It is UNISON policy that no member should be deterred from applying for a course because of facilitation needs, necessary childcare or other care commitments.

Cancellation policy

Where places on courses are cancelled without good cause charges will be levied as follows: Where places are cancelled within two weeks of the start of the course the cost will be 50% of the course cost. Where places are cancelled within one week of the start of the course the cancellation will be 100%.

Our commitment to equalities

As part of UNISON’s equal opportunities policy in education there is a questionnaire at the back of the application form. This information will be strictly confidential and used only to monitor UNISON’s ability to deliver educational opportunities fairly to all sections of its membership.
