Events & Training
MiP runs a series of networking events and training courses around the country to support your professional development and help you to get more involved with the union:
As full members of both the FDA and UNISON, you can also take part in events organised by both unions, and take advantage of all the learning opportunities offered by UNISON Member Learning and FDA Learn.
Masterclasses, conferences and networking events
MiP runs a variety of regional masterclasses and seminars – usually half-day interactive workshops on topical issues specifically for healthcare managers. We also hold informal regional meetings so members can get together to discuss local developments and network among themselves.
MiP has developed partnerships with think tanks and professional bodies to offer discounted access to healthcare conferences.
We have also teamed up with Big Difference Company to offer a series of seminars to promote Learning through Good Practice. They address two key topics: how to work effectively with patients and the public, and how to develop personal resilience to deal with challenging work programmes.
Details of these and all other MiP events are emailed to members and also available from this website.
MiP has joined forces with the Open University to offer accredited learning courses at special discounted rates – with qualifications ranging from certificates to a full Masters degree. We provide a range of healthcare-related courses and many more, covering subjects such as employment law, finance, management and leadership. Visit the Open University’s MiP page
