Nancy courseTrade Union Education uses well-proven techniques, which are designed to enable each and every student the opportunity to participate and share in an informal setting. You will take part in practical activities related to the topic of the course eg role play, group discussions, feedback. You will not have to listen to lectures. There are no exams or tests and you don't need any formal qualifications.

Courses are run on a residential and/or non-residential basis indicated on Course Programme Details to meet varied individual activists needs.


The venues we use are chosen as far as possible for their accessibility by public and private transport and for their facilities for the disabled. Whenever possible we look for public sector venues, particularly for our Day Release courses and we always welcome suggestions for alternative venues.

Most of our Residential courses are run in large comfortable hotels. Single room accommodation is normally provided, unless you advise us otherwise on your application form. Full details and joining instructions will be sent on receipt of acceptance of application.



All our courses are run in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, and we suggest you dress for comfort.


Working Together

On all our courses you will be given a set of straightforward guidelines that are designed to enable everyone to work together. These include guidance on the avoidance of language that may be offensive and the avoidance of harassment.

If you experience any of these situations you should draw this to the attention of the course tutor at the first opportunity. On residential courses your attention will also be drawn to guidelines for outside course hours.
