TUC course encourages women to step up to leadership

Come and join TUC Education and TUC Northern on exciting new Women in leadership programme – ‘stepping up’ course, for those wishing to develop their leadership positions within the trade union movement, or build their CV skills to advance into leadership roles within their organisation and communities.

The “Stepping Up – Women in Leadership” course for Women trade unionists, will be delivered in the TUC’s Northern region over 5 days between February and September 2018 and will require some online learning and development too. This will require a level of commitment to achieve an NOCN level 2 Certificate qualification on completion.

TUC Northern Regional Secretary Beth Farhat said:

This course is an exciting opportunity for woman to come together and will explore activism, campaigning, motivation, media skills and much much more.”

It will also celebrate the TUC’s 150th anniversary year with a visit to Parliament as well as meeting key women within the TUC and Westminster parliamentary structures.”
