UNISON Northern Ireland

Education and Training

The Education and Training Programme combined with our Life Long 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. 

You can download a copy of the Life Long Learning Programme Here.

There are also courses for Members and Activists, Training Programme Here.
