Have just finished this NUJ course, up in Barnsley. Twas very interesting and informative. Mainly for ‘staffers’ in the union, but it was useful for us freelance types also.

Am writing to invite you to take part in a course that will teach you, and any of your colleagues who may be interested, the basic skills of being an NUJ rep. It is happening at the Northern College, near Barnsley, on Tuesday 3 and Wednesday 4 of February.


As an interested member of the NUJ I think you will find the course very useful. If you have been on other courses it is still worth doing the basic reps programme.

The union will pay for accommodation, food, course, and travel costs.

One of the most beneficial things about attending an NUJ course is that you meet other union members who are dealing with the same issues as you every day.

If the union is recognised in your workplace you should receive paid time off to attend. Freelances, PRs, and members in non-recognised workplaces are also welcome to attend.

The Northern College is set in beautiful countryside and specialises in adult and trade union education.
