BECTU Northern Training

BECTU courses are designed predominantly for freelance BECTU members. All courses are offered at a discounted rate to BECTU members. In some cases, non-members may apply for these courses but the rates may be considerably higher than BECTU member-rates. We are able to offer cost effective courses because we are part-funded through the Union Learning Fund; it is a contractual requirement with the ULF that we collect Equality and Diversity info for people coming on our courses and we ask for this as part of the sign up process. If you object to this you can 'prefer not to say'.
