This course aims at empowering trade unionists to communicate constructively, openly and more effectively. Developing your argumentation skills in a cross-cultural group helps you achieve your goals. By helping trade unionists to improve their communication skills, we are also opening the path so that networking with other trade unionists across borders may become easier and more effective. Overcoming the fear of speaking is one of the most important steps in order to discuss and argue our trade union position at the European level.

By the end of this course participants will be able to:

  • use communication techniques that enable them to get across their messages effectively in English;
  • exchange information and views about current trade union issues in European countries;
  • widen their perspective of trade unionism in Europe by communicating with other European trade union officers in a common language; -implement argumentation skills in a cross-cultural group so as to achieve set goals;
  • practice and improve their level of English in a more autonomous way. Target group: Full-time officers or representatives with international responsibilities having, at least, an intermediate level of English.
