Learning will be facilitated through a variety of modalities to include lectures, oral presentations, demonstrations, videos,audios, role play, games and group discussions.

Training coordinator at the ABWU, Sis. Hazel Luke is delighted to launch the French course. “Gone are the days when the Union’s only role was to fight for better wages. We are a progressive organization and we want to empower our membership through training,” Luke posits.

In recent years, the ABWU facilitated courses in Industrial Relations, Human Resource Management, Financial Management, Gender Parity, Youth Intervention, as well as Mental and Emotional Wellness.
