Trade union education is in the doldrums. It generally lacks modern ways of teaching and is full of outdated content and avoids history, economics and politics.
This book demonstrates clearly that what is delivered in trade union education, andhow it is delivered, have to be reformed and modernised.
It successfully shows also how all trade unionists are educators in one way or another.
Chapters cover the history, context and challenges in trade union education, the power of popular education techniques, trade union activism, community and social movements, practical examples of transformative new work and learning tips, learning materials and all those areas relevant to delivering impactful education.
