TSSA National Reps Training Seminar 2012: Thursday 6 - Saturday 8 September Birmingham University

22 July 2011

The Executive Committee has decided that the 2012 TSSA National Reps Training Seminar (NRTS) should be held at Birmingham University from Thursday 6 September to Saturday 8 September.

Birmingham University has been chosen because of its central location, which will mean shorter journey times for most attendees. Birmingham University has its own railway station (University) a few minutes from Birmingham New Street, one of the national rail system’s key hub stations. University itself is served by direct Cross Country trains from Nottingham and Cardiff. Birmingham Airport is nearby, served by flights from Scotland and Ireland. It has also been chosen because it has accommodation much more suited to NRTS requirements.

NRTS has previously been held in conjunction with and at the same venue as Annual Conference. It has become apparent that some reps have had difficulty in obtaining release for an extended period in order to attend both NRTS and Annual Conference, and it is hoped that moving NRTS to a different time of year will overcome this problem.

A circular will be sent to reps early in 2012 inviting applications. In the meantime, reps are urged to put the NRTS 2012 dates in their diaries!
