GFTU Courses at Northern College in Yorkshire

GFTU courses at Northern College

Here at The Northern College, we have been facilitating the training of activists for over 40 years. Already working in partnership with many trade unions, we are able to offer excellent tailored education provision in the unique residential setting of a Grade-I listed country house situated in the Yorkshire countryside. Our courses are residential, meaning you can enjoy the house and 800 acres of gardens, land and deer park. For more information on The Northern College, please visit

The GFTU courses are residential and most are accredited meaning you achieve a qualification in trade union studies. Courses include bed, breakfast, evening meal and tea/coffee twice a day at break times. The GFTU website also has details of all the courses which can be viewed here and here

 The dates are here and the following pages have a synospis of each course. Thank you, Paul Gibson, Trade Union Education at The Northern College. 01226 776000
