Member Learning

Whether you are a member or activist looking for learning all our offers can be found and booked via our website.




As we move towards 2022 UNISON SW has some amazing new online offers. 2021 saw us move to an all-online offer and as we move in to 2022, we hope to organise learning closer to our members and some in person learning opportunities, so keep an eye out for local workplace events.

Our programme includes our initial offers to members with more being advertised very soon. To reach out to as many members as we can we offer most of our learning online, Courses run on either ZOOM or MS Teams.

All member learning is FREE to members in the Southwest.

Don’t forget to share our offers across your membership and in your workplace. 

All our courses/workshops are delivered by experienced tutors in a relaxed environment.
