TUC Education works closely with European Trade Union Institute (ETUI), the independent research and training centre of the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC). The department co-ordinates Europe level courses which enable union reps, officers and tutors from across Europe to take part in a unique learning experience, acquiring new skills and information, sharing common values and gaining a broader perspective on trade union issues.
Courses are advertised on the ETUI website and through TUC Education both as an annual programme and eight weeks before each course on the union professionals website. Applications should be returned to Liz Rees or Jackie Williams for submission to ETUI from the TUC. Flights and accommodation costs are met by ETUI for successful applicants and a small fee (of which you will be advised) is payable by your union.
TUC Education provides tutors to work on courses as well as course participants at every level, and is represented on the ETUI Advisory Committee.
