Political Education

Political Education

From its inception Trademark has functioned as a roving community and workers’ college, delivering core trade union education in addition to bespoke political economy programmes initially developed in the wake of the 2007/08 financial crisis.

We have been working consistently to embed radical political education in the Irish and British trade union movements, with the aim of ‘growing’ a cohort of trade union activists who are equipped to analyse the system and articulate radical economic and political alternatives. The organisation’s pedagogical practice is rooted in the best traditions of trade education, as it seeks to harness the knowledge, experience and creativity of workers and communities towards the building of a genuinely transformative movement.
Trademark’s education programme covers a variety of subjects including:

• History and Identity in Britain and Ireland
• Human Rights & Equality
• Anti-Sectarianism, Anti-Racism, Prejudice & Discrimination
• Basic Shop Stewards’ Training
• An Introduction to Political Economy
• Co-operative Development
• Alternative Economic and Political Strategies
• Climate Breakdown and the Just
Transition

The programme is also delivered in a community setting to support the organisation’s core community relations objectives, and help build the capacity of marginalised interests to engage in difficult conversations and consider the possibilities for building a better social and economic future.
We remain open and flexible to the design and delivery of education, be that for a trade union body, community group, civil society organisation or political party. Contact us to discuss a course or standalone session that might best suit your needs and interests.
