Priority 6: Capacity building


The training is meant to reinforce trade union knowledge and action in Europe. The European training for young trade union leaders is designed as a nine-month course combining three residential seminars (face-to-face activities) with group activities on specific issues to be completed between the seminars.

By successfully completing the training, participants will have the possibility of gaining an officially recognised qualification, accredited by the UK NOCN through a partnership with the TUC and the Edinburgh College. This qualification is mapped to the European Qualifications Framework.
