Stepping up  - Women in Leadership

Stepping up - Women in Leadership


An NOCN Level 2 Certificate with the TUC

Course for Trade Union Reps and Members in the Northern Region

TUC Northern are running an exciting new Women in leadership programme – ‘stepping up’ course, for those wishing to develop their leadership positions within the trade union movement, or build their CV skills to advance into leadership roles within their organisation and communities.

The course is for Women trade unionists and will be delivered in the TUC’s Northern region over 5 days between February and September 2018 and will require some online learning and development too. This will require a level of commitment to achieve an NOCN level 2 Certificate qualification on completion.

This course will also celebrate the TUC’s 150th anniversary year with a visit to Parliament as well as meeting key women within the TUC and Westminster parliamentary structures. 

Explore activism, campaigning, motivation, media skills and much much more.  

The course is free to attend and places are limited to 25.  If you are interested in applying please approach the AEP offices in the first instance via enquiries@aep.org.uk.
