UNISON Online Stewards Course

12 September – 28 October 2022

Our online course for elected stewards delivers the same learning outcomes as the face-to-face Stage 1 + Stage 2 workplace representatives course combination. It is hosted on the TUC web platform, from where you will be able to access the course resources as well as submit coursework and engage with other participants in closed forums.

Closing date for applications – 29 August 2022

Although your learning will be mainly self-guided the course is lead by experienced TUC tutors who will deliver three virtual live tutorial sessions using Microsoft Teams. These tutorials will provide structure and guidance to the course, they also create a supportive learning environment. The tutors are also on hand to provide additional support if required.

As with our other courses, you will be provided with a mentor from your region or branch, who will help answer any questions you have regarding the role of a UNISON steward.

If your application is successful, your branch will be charged £30. We will inform them of this when we contact them to approve your application.
