Training for stewards

We understand that the role of CSP steward can sometimes feel daunting, so the CSP provides full support and training to all its representatives.

All our courses are designed so you develop the knowledge, skills and confidence that will enable you to fulfil your role as a CSP steward to best effect.

Attending a CSP stewards' training course allows you to meet other stewards where you can network, discuss your experiences as a CSP steward, workshop issues that are of common concern and practice your stewards' skills in a safe, supportive environment.

We strongly encourage stewards to attend the induction training as soon as possible after election and to participate in regional training days to enhance your skills as a CSP steward.

Further information on the courses available can be obtained from the Enquiries Team (ET) by phone on 020 7306 6666 or email
