Certificate in Employment Law

This course is designed for union representatives who have already completed the TUC Stage 1 Union Representatives Course or its Union equivalent.

This is a practical training course, designed for Trade Union Workplace Reps to show how knowledge of and confidence in using employment law can improve workplace bargaining. The Employment Law Certificate has been designed to help reps understand the full range of laws that affect working people including facility time, equality, dismissal, employment tribunals, redundancy and TUPE, amongst others.

Please note that this course is not aimed at legal professionals and does not cover the finer points of technical interpretation of the law.


This course is offered in class and online simultaneously.

“Reps have had difficulty obtaining the time off for training. As a result, we have managed to condense the 10 day programme in to 5 days in an attempt to make it easier for reps to get the time off from their employer. Anyone successfully completing the course will still receive the same certificate”
