The Association plans a one-day training course for branch representatives to be held on Thursday 11th April, 2019 in AHCPS Head Office.
The course is aimed at any members who are playing an active role in their branch at either secretary, chair or as a branch committee member and want a better understanding of how the union operates and how to more effectively carry out their role.
The course will cover the following:
- Role of the Branch rep
- AHCPS structures
- C&A Scheme / WRC / Labour Court
- Consensus building, negotiations and communication
- Dealing with issues
- Practical case study
The Course will run from 09:30 to 4:15 in AHCPS Head Office. Lunch will be provided. Normal T&S will apply for those outside Dublin.
Places are limited to 12 people. If there is sufficient interest we will run further courses.
