Agenda for Summer Training 2016

13432338_1121513227908589_8940385680719613273_nNCAFC’s Summer Training for activists will be on 27-28 August at SUARTS, Holborn, London. We’ve planned a mixture of practical skill-sharing sessions (motion writing, public speaking, press), workshops and plenaries about the challenges facing our movement and how we should respond: from reforms taking place in Higher and Further Education, to the aftermath of the EU Referendum, and more. We’ll also be talking about organising on campus and giving you the tools to run effective campaigns. If you’re interested in making the NSS sabotage happen, working with campus trade unions, improving your Labour club, or want key advice on being a good leftwing union officer – this is the place to be. Whether you’re an experienced activist or just beginning to get involved, we’re sure you’ll have a chance to learn something new, and meet other inspiring activists and officers from around the country.
