Have you thought about learning new skills in 2013 ?
The College of North East London is running a series of short courses in 2013. They are free to Union members so why not think about signing up for a course?
Pensions (get to grips with the jargon and how your pension works)
3 Tuesdays from 12th March 2013 and
3 Mondays from 24th June 2013
Equalities (develop an understanding of issues around disability, equal pay and domestic violence.)
For members who wish to become Equality reps in the Branch.
3 Fridays from 1st March 2013.
Disability award (covers sickness absence, disability discrimination and supporting members with disabilities)
5 Tuesdays from 11th June 2013
Public speaking (improve your speaking skills for all areas of your life)
3 Wednesdays from 13th March 2013.
All courses will be held at the College in High Road, Tottenham (next to Seven Sisters tube). The public speaking course is open to all members but the other courses are for existing Reps or members interested in becoming Reps.
We are setting up a mentoring scheme in the Branch so new Reps will receive support from more experienced ones so why not learn something new in 2013 and help your colleagues with your new skills.
If you are interested in any of the course please email Marilyn.firstname.lastname@example.org (Branch Education Officer) .
