It shows how the TUCs educational role developed in the years before the Second World War and through to the 1950s. The main focus, though, is on the period since the formation of the TUCs regional educational service in 1963.

In a detailed study of what education for trade unionists has consisted of - what was taught and learnt, and how - John Holford shows how educational strategy was formed in the 1960s, and how the TUC shaped the field in the 1970s, securing government funding for union-controlled courses, and legal rights to paid time off work for students. He shows how the structures built in the 1970s were successfully defended during the Thatcher era, and, with the end of public funding now in sight, discusses strategies for the future.

Union Education In Britain also analyses links between union education and labour relations policies. It explores the origins and role of TUC educational approaches (which have had international influence). This book is an important contribution to studies in British adult education and industrial relations, as well as being highly topical to debates on the future of the British trade union movement.
