Welcome to this new collaborative learning initiative.

You have the opportunity to sign up to five online modules that will be offered over the coming 12 months. You can sign up to any module, but only once to any given subject. You will receive a Co-operative College e-certificate for every online module that you successfully complete.

Please ensure you cancel any session if you find you can no longer attend. All session bookings will be closed 48 hours prior to the event.

At this stage, the dates released for each session are for 2021 only. You can find full details of dates for each module below.

  • 21 June - 3 July
  • 27 September - 9 October

How it Works

Sessions are led by a Co-operative College tutor and will involve participation by all students. Each session is between 2 ½ - 3 hours long and there are 15 students per session. The sessions will be held on Zoom

Signing up to a session

Signing up to a session is via the Eventbrite platform by selecting your chosen date below.

Only choose one course from each section as each course is repeated four times.

Have your say: Help us improve our rep programme

You will be invited to provide some anonymous equality and diversity data when you sign up to any of the online sessions. It is discretionary – but will help us understand the reach and engagement with any given online module.

At the end of each online session, you will also have the opportunity to have your say. Please allow the 2-3 minutes it takes to complete the survey. This will help and inform what and how we operate in the future.

Enjoy Yourselves

Finally, enjoy the learning and meeting other union colleagues!
