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.

Charges and expenses

There is no charge for this course but travel and accommodation expenses will need to be met by the branch.

Facilitation and dependant 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.

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.
