CWU Parcelforce Agreement IR Training

Motions 68 and 69 were accepted at Postal Conference 2015. The above referred to course has now been scheduled in conjunction with the Postal and Education & Training Departments to be delivered at the Elstead Hotel, Bournemouth. The course has been scheduled to take place commencing Monday 3rd October 2016. However, should the number of applications indicate that a further course is required consideration will be given to running an additional course commencing Monday 10th October 2016.
This course is aimed at CWU representatives in Parcelforce. With presentations and expert advice from senior IR experts during the five day programme you will receive a thorough grounding in how to effectively represent your members working within the business. 
This newly designed course will be delivered over five days and includes a full programme of group activities, presentations and guest speakers delivered by experienced CWU facilitators. 
This course is designed to:
• Help Parcelforce Reps encourage members to become more active in the CWU

• Develop a better understanding of the current agreements 

• Provide an opportunity to build effective support and networks for Parcelforce Reps

• Develop new ideas for how your members can work at the heart of the CWU
This course is designed to ensure that everyone gets the chance to participate fully through working in small groups, taking part in group discussions, role play and practical exercises.

This course attracts paid release from Parceforce for Parcelforce representatives and applicants will be provided with the appropriate documentation to provide to the employer prior to attendance.

The following two separate Parcelforce Industrial Training courses are currently scheduled to take place at the Elstead Hotel.
• Monday 3rd – Fri 7th October 2015 (As outlined above if demand dictates an additional course may be scheduled for Monday 10th – Friday 14th October)
• (Closing date for applications – Monday 8th August 2015)
