Become a rep or develop your skills with Unite training in 2020

Unite Scotland’s education team are running the rest of the education courses this year online on Zoom. This is a great opportunity for those interested in becoming

  • workplace reps
  • health and safety reps
  • specialised roles, such as equality reps or union learning reps.

We are also looking into running a health and safety reps course specifically for our branch. Comment below if you’re interested in this.

Certificate courses are accredited by Fife College, so you will come away with a recognised qualification on completion!

The next election period for the branch is January to March 2021, so all roles will be up for nominations.
