The new home for all of Fórsa’s training and development initiatives was launched yesterday (16th September). The Fórsa Skills Academy will offer a wide range of introductory, expanded and advanced training designed for the union’s workplace representatives and branch activists. You can read more about the range of courses HERE.
Speaking at the launch Fórsa’s director of training and development Linda Kelly described the academy as “a new era, supporting all of our incredible workplace representatives.”
Fórsa activist and local government chair Julie Flood spoke passionately and encouragingly about her experience with the union’s training offering.
Fórsa general secretary Kevin Callinan, deputy general secretary Eoin Ronayne and president Michael Smyth also welcomed the new venture.
Details of the first introductory course – Fórsa 101 – have been circulated to branches, and we have invited expressions of interest. This is a half-day online course on the union and how it works, with a focus on the role of Fórsa workplace representatives.
Members who are interested in attending should discuss their application with their branch training officer or branch secretary and the Fórsa official assigned to their branch.
Full details of how to apply are available HERE.
