Trade Unions have a long and proud history of worker education. From the founding of Ruskin College in Oxford in 1899 to provide third level education for working class people, to the establishment of the Workers Educational Association in 1903, Trade Unions have been involved in the struggle to provide 'second chance' educational opportunities for people for many generations.
We provide courses for all union reps free of charge. Our courses are provided by accredited trade union tutors with many years experience in the trade union movement. Courses are accredited with the Open College Network.
