The Association takes the Training of its membership with every seriousness. Therefore, year-in-year-out, the Association trains and educates its members on various facets of trade union, the economy, and politics in order to produce a total unionist. The Association in the past established a three-tier training programme (Stages I – III), starting from the rudiments of unionism to the advanced aspects of the economy to prepare members for leadership positions. National Officers are also exposed to leadership workshops (both local and international) and women seminars are also organised to promote gender sensitivity. The Constitution of the Association specifically provides in clear terms that 10% of the Association’s funds be set aside for Training and Education.
