UNISON College

Our Activist and Member Learning Programme continues to be identified by members as one of our most important areas of work. Both programmes give support to members and activists especially at a time when employers are cutting back on their training and development programmes.

We offer over 70 workshops for all members across topics such as autism, dementia, palliative care, mindfulness, supporting staff, bereavement, communicating effectively, acute brain injuries, interview skills, power and prejudice, suicide awareness, dealing with stress and bullying.
