European works councils and SE representative bodies

The ETUI Education department has an extensive training offer for worker representatives and trade union officers that are active at a cross-border, European level.

Every year, we organise a number of seminars for individual EWC/SE Works Council members and EWC coordinators on a broad range of themes. Please find these courses listed below. In addition, we run a dedicated, tailor-made training service for whole European Works Councils, Special Negotiating Bodies and SE Work Councils.

Our central objective is to enable individual worker representatives to acquire skills, knowledge and competences to fulfil their European role with confidence and for EWCs and SE Works Councils to grow into a coherent and efficient body. We work closely with the relevant national trade union organisations, the European Trade Union Federations and the ETUC and are thus a key reference for trade union oriented training at the European level. 

Our training offer benefits from:

  • many years of experience in training worker representatives and union officers;
  • a multinational team of trainers experienced in working with multicultural groups and the practice of EWC activities;
  • direct links and close cooperation with the ETUC, the European Trade Union Federations and national trade unions;
  • relevant expertise from across the ETUI and a large network of researchers and consultants;
  • the additional support and resources of the European Worker Participation Competence Centre

To overcome language barriers and acquire specialised vocabulary for their role, ETUI Education also offers an annual English language and communication course for individual European-level worker representatives as well as tailor-made English language courses for whole EWCs and SE Works Councils.
