Courses for Prospect reps
Prospect is committed to ensuring our workplace representatives have the skills and knowledge they need to carry out their trade union role effectively and to the best of their ability.
Our education team delivers around 50 courses to hundreds of members across the UK each year. You can view details of all the courses in the national programme, with dates and venues, and apply online.
Members can also participate in training courses organised by their branch, section or region and funded by the education team.
Reps can access a range of other courses run by the TUC and/or the GFTU.
Choosing a Prospect course
On our course listings page click on a course title to find out more about its content and who it's aimed at. This should help you make an informed choice about which course is right for you, based on your role and level of experience. You'll also see if there are any scheduled dates/venues for the course; if you're logged in you'll be able to apply online.
If you're still unsure which course is most appropriate for you, please speak to your branch or section secretary and/or your Prospect organiser. If you are still in doubt, contact the education team on 020 7346 0900 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
When you apply for a Prospect course please notify your branch secretary, Prospect organiser and full-time officer. Give some thought to how you will use your new skills once back at work and who will support you in this.
The key information page tells you what to expect when you apply for a course. Once you have a confirmed place on a course, please do your utmost to attend. If you're unable to attend, we ask you to let us know as soon as possible.
We want you to enjoy your learning experience with us. If there is anything we can do to improve our service to you, please email the education team.
