UCU rep at South Cheshire College, Lyndsey Nicholson, successfully negotiated with her management, for UCU to deliver a CPD day at the College.
Over 50 staff attended sessions including an Assertiveness Skills workshop, Leadership workshop, life-work balance workshop, pensions workshop, individual career reviews and individual pension consultations.
Sessions were by Tracy Walsh from Ruskin College, Chris Mason from UCU pensions, John Bamford UCU Health and Safety and Janet Newsham UCU North West regional office.
This was an inspiring event and a really positive way to promote the union and what we do to support education staff. Feedback showed the enthusiasm members felt:
“It was very interesting to discuss issues with a variety of colleagues from a wider range of jobs.”
“A thought provoking day.”
“A very enjoyable and fun event.”
“Good discussion and reflection on professional practice – this has helped me greatly.”
