GMB is at the forefront of the trade union movement in providing education and training for its representatives, branch officers and full time officials. Our extensive regional training programme offers a package of courses from induction and support training for new representatives to advanced training for more experienced representatives.
Following your election you will be required to attend a GMB@Work training course aimed at enhancing your capabilities and skills as a GMB representative.
Under present legislation, your employer should give you paid release for this training. You can then progress to more advanced training and education opportunities.
Contact your regional organiser for information on our GMB@Work training courses.
