This course is designed for Branch Officers to attend together and take back their action plan to the rest of the Branch Committee. It is essential training for branch negotiators, Branch Secretary, Service Conditions Officer, Convenors, Equality Co-ordinator, and Black Member’s Officers. 


This course will assist everyone within the branch to become pro-active in identifying and challenging racism to ensure that all workers are treated fairly.  

It will also help:  

  • Build an integrated and team approach for dealing with issues of racism collectively within the branch  
  • Gain an awareness of the opportunities The Equality Act 2010, provides to identify institutional racism and ensure that the issues are dealt with  
  • Improve your knowledge of the tools you can use to engage with your employer on tackling race discrimination
  • Explore how an organising approach can be taken to tackle racism in the workplace
  • Build confidence in negotiating with employers 



You should make your Branch aware that you are attending this course in order for them to keep their records up to date and ensure you receive up to date information relevant to your role.

If you are in need of support to request time off from your work to attend please talk to the branch to gain support.

You may have a local policy to support with gaining reasonable time off to attend training from your employer. There is also guidance via ACAS – Time off advice
