E-Learning Online Short Courses


Welcome to online learning with the GMB

The Education Department is pleased to bring you the region’s first section dedicated to online learning courses. These courses are available by simply clicking on the electronic title. It is important to remember that whilst undertaking these e-learning courses that as a GMB representative you are still entitled to paid release duty and facility time to enable you to complete these courses.

Don’t miss out on paid release

If you are a member and not a GMB legislative post-holder then you may have to take these courses in your own time. I suggest that those of you who are post-holders commence negotiating your paid release or the equivalent reimbursement of release with your employer prior to commencing the course.  You may also want to get your full time officer involved during these negotiations.

These courses are not a replacement of our conventional training programme they are seen as being additional and an alternative way of becoming educated. To enable you to deliver the best service to members that the GMB can provide.
