Free UNISON courses for members working in local government

UNISON is providing free training courses for members working in local government.

Full details of the courses, along with sign up details, are provided on the link below. Members can sign up for the courses themselves. All courses will be for 2.5 hours and will be held online on Teams – we hope this makes it easier for members to attend. Please circulate these courses to members in your branches.
