Learn and develop with Prospect's Organising & Leadership Academy (POLA)

There are two distinct aspects to our education, learning and skills work: training our reps and ensuring they have the skills they need to be effective, and promoting members' personal and career development.

*** Please Note:  Courses for September 2016 onwards will be open for applications from mid-June 2016

POLA's education service runs the union's education programme, arranges funding for branch, section or regional training, and co-ordinates TUC Education and GFTU training for members. Our next few courses are shown below; for further courses, please see the full programme. Our Skills and Lifelong Learning team supports and promotes learning and career development in your workplace rafting and delivering learning agreements.
