This course is essential for members active within their Local Association and is particularly effective where local secretaries, assistant secretaries and other members of the Local Association team attend the course together.

The course compares and contrasts the ‘servicing’ and ‘organising’ models of trade unions, evaluates the differences in approach and examines the effective use of an organising model within the NASUWT.

Using an active learning approach, course participants examine how to:

  • develop their Local Association;
  • build a strong and active union in the workplace;
  • recruit new members and activists;
  • organise in teams;
  • tackle the barriers to trade union organisation; and
  • organise and campaign around workplace issues.
