We are committed to training every rep and training them to the highest standard.
Our programme falls into three key areas:
Core programme and progression as highlighted below. A progression that starts with Zone 1: the Induction course, and moves to the introductory courses in Zone 2. Each course is accompanied by a series of workplace activities, these activities should be completed before attending the following courses. This would include incorporating a six month gap to gain the necessary workplace experience before attending the Zone 3 courses and beyond.
Specialism courses. We believe that when it comes to training and development it is the breadth of provision that best suits the building of capacity within the TSSA. From pension champions to rail franchising. Courses to develop specific interest and skills, courses for both representatives, branch officers and members.
Bespoke Courses. What course? you decide! Course provision that aims to deliver problem solving training around a workplace issue, therefore allowing us to respond quickly and visibly to the issues affecting us.
Our Education and Organising Programme page shows the programme in a diagram. The other pages in this section cover the courses in more detail.
