Local Partnership Programme

To complement the online learning experience of MOOCs, the GLU has set up a Local Partnership Programme. Under this Programme, the GLU cooperates with partners from the global trade union movement, labour-related organisations and universities around the world. 

The partnership programme consists of:

  • Free download and use of all course material in local workshops and trainings.
  • The option of local “blended” workshops for trade unionists, academics, labour activists and other MOOC participants. “Blended” means that the workshops typically combine online components (e.g. videos from the online courses) and local discussions.
  • Upon request, experts from the GLU network can provide inputs (online or residential) to workshops and trainings on minimum wages, collective bargaining, global supply chains and international labour standards.
  • Cooperation on the distribution of scholarships upon recommendation by the partners.

If you work for a trade union, labour-related organisation or a University and would be interested to join the Partnership Programme, please send an email to online(at)global-labour-university.org

Some examples of local blended workshops are listed below.
