Dear Colleagues

RMT TRADE UNION EDUCATION – ONLINE

You will be aware that due to the current pandemic the BCNEC has been closed down provisionally until the end of June and the delivery of regional courses have been suspended similarly.

Whilst the traditional delivery of RMT Trade Union education has been on a ‘face to face’ classroom basis there is clearly an opportunity to provide in this period some online training opportunities. I have instructed the National Education Officer to develop course materials that can be delivered online in a number of formats. This will require some considerable adjustment to how the courses are administered, delivered and if possible accredited, although the question of accreditation may prove difficult in the short term.

Details of the courses available and application process will be promulgated in due course.

Yours sincerely

General Secretary
