- To acquire communication techniques to enable European Trade Unionists to get across their messages effectively in English.
- To bring together European trade union officers and by exchanging information, good practices and views about current trade union issues in these countries, to widen participants’ perspectives of trade unionism in Europe.
- To further practise and improve on their level of English.
Methods and contents:
Based upon the principles of active participation and collaboration participants are involved in group work and projects. Particular attention is given to those micro-skills which are useful to trade unionists, such as participating in discussions and meetings, making oral presentations, etc. Materials used throughout the course will be relevant to the trade union context.
Themes covered may include the following:
- Trade union structures and organisation
- Collective bargaining
- Trade Union renewal
- Workplace issues
- Green Jobs
- The different roles of the Trade Unions in an international context
There will be six hours of formal tuition plus related activities on each of the six days of the course (apart from the days of arrival and departure) together with a wide range of extra cultural activities outside the training sessions.
The enclosed programme will give you an overview of the course contents.
Participants should already have at least an intermediate level of English. They should therefore NOT be beginners, and should already have sufficient English to be able to deal with varied daily tasks.
