If possible find a quiet space to complete the course either at work or at home. What equipment are you going to use? To access all of our E-learning courses, you will need a tablet or computer. If you are using your employer’s IT equipment, then make sure you have permission to use it for a trade union course. Most facility agreements allow you to use employer equipment, but check with your branch if you are unsure. Ensure that you have access to use ZOOM or TEAMs.



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
