It was mostly personal online study but once a month there was an all day virtual class.
So far I have never met in person either the tutors or my class. My experience of virtual training was very positive but I did miss face to face contact and debate (and the stopping off for a drink after a class).
The work load was pretty intense at times especially the written assessment and the research project.
I would strongly recommend experienced union reps apply for this course or any of the relevant TUC sponsored courses https://www.tuc.org.uk/TUCcourses
Many thanks to our tutors Abbie and Andy, for their knowledge and enthusiasm and to all the other course members for working and learning so well together.
