Organising / Activists' Skills

We will be organising branch development training throughout the year to develop your strengths and skills to build a network of strong effective members.

Anyone who wants to represent individual members in personal cases, undertake collective representation or become a Health & Safety rep should look to attend one of the courses provided for Napo members by the Trades Union Congress (TUC) or the General Federation of Trade Unions (GFTU). Please visit the websites below to find out about any courses available in your area and contact your branch if you want to attend one in order we can support you to get time off to attend any. And there are plenty of other seminars that may be of interest to you.
