Training and Events

Quote from a member, discussing her attendance on a UCU Scotland training course:  “The training was excellent and summary of important information most helpful. For those who want to be more involved, it is essential.” Why not come and see for yourself  how useful our training courses can be in your daily life, as well as when you are representing UCU? If you are interested in a specific type of course, please contact, who will find out which courses in that field are being run, and where they are being held. A variety of courses are running throughout the year, spread over the UK.


UCU’s Training department is currently working to facilitate online reps training courses as an alternative to our normal classroom based courses. Course materials are also being adapted to take into account the pandemic and its impact on the workplace and representing members. Courses expected to be available soon include Equality Reps, Reps 1 and Reps 2. Look out for further details in future updates from UCU Scotland. 

The TUC has also arranged online reps courses for members in Scotland. Members wishing to undertake TUC courses are asked to let the UCU Scotland Office know –
