Delegate Education.

TEU is rolling out new delegate education courses for members up and down Aotearoa. The new courses feature updated content, course material and resource kits along with systematic follow-up to ensure newly trained delegates are well supported in their roles.

There are two full-day courses, Level 1 and Level 2, tailored to different experience levels and covering topics such as the structure of the TEU, knowing your collective agreement, helping colleagues to navigate difficult employment situations, and asking colleagues to join the union.

Te Pou Mātauranga me Te Pou Ahumahi | Education & Industrial Campaigns Officer Megan Morris says, “I am really excited about the new courses and the opportunities they will create for more people to get involved with our union in a meaningful way and build a more active and effective union on the ground.”

“We’re making a concerted effort to run these courses in as many regions as possible, with a strong preference for activists from multiple institutions to come together and share ideas and experiences.”

“The next tranche of courses will take place in the middle of the year. Anyone interested should look out for a date in their area or feel free to contact me and I will do my best to ensure there is a seat with your name on it.”
