After a successful pilot programme, the TUC is recruiting for the second intake into its Lay Leadership Development Programme. 

 The programme will provide senior lay union representatives (i.e. members of union National Executives) with a challenging and innovative package of training, discussion and support delivered over three 2-day modules.  The core themes of the programme will be the way unions respond to key strategic and organisational challenges, the need to increase membership and member participation and how unions campaign more effectively both nationally and internationally.

 Dates for the programme are;

  •          Module 1, Challenges, Strategy and Resources– November 17 and 18
  •          Module 2, Strategic Campaigning and Governance – January 12 and 13, 2012
  •          Module 3, Global Organising  – March 1 and 2, 2012

All modules will take place at the TUC, Congress House, London.

 The total cost of the programme will be £500 per participant, including course costs and meals. This cost does not include accommodation and/or travel.
