Rep Training Courses
In order to carry out the duties required as an Accord Rep, you must attend at least module one of the union’s training programme. The other training modules do not have to be completed in any particular order. Please look below to see what each module contains. You are entitled to paid time off to attend all of these courses, but you must give adequate notice and agree the time off with your manager. Accord will pay any reasonable expenses you incur by undertaking the modules.
Module 1 – Union reps induction
Module 2 – Stepping up
Module 3 – Organising your workplace
Module 4 – Executive responsibilities
Module 5 – Health, Safety & Stress at Work
Module 6 – Recruitment
Module 7 – Equality in the workplace
Please note – we are currently only offering Reps who have never previously had training a one day induction course which is now being carried out by Accord Officers. If you haven’t attended Module 1 and would like to, please contact your local officer directly. You can find contact details for each officer (Assistant Secretary) here.
