Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU)

The Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU) has a proud tradition of encouraging members to partake in all forms of education, whether that be to enhance their skills as union representatives or to increase their academic qualifications. The union prioritises learning at every level of the union, with education being on every agenda from branch level, right through to national executive meetings.

The union runs 16 in-house courses every year for our shop stewards, health and safety representatives and union learner representatives, building their knowledge base to enable them to represent you to the highest standard. From basic representation to more advanced diversity and equality training, BFAWU aims to deliver first class training through our network of trainers.

BFAWU also runs four union learning fund projects covering England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, which offer second to none opportunities for workers within the food industry and in the wider community, to build their educational portfolio or to brush up on those subjects that may have been missed or under achieved earlier in life.

The union has a great team waiting to help with computer training from taster days to more advanced applications, help with English, Maths and communication skills or assistance with CV writing.
