The Education Centre of the Confederation of German Trade Unions (DGB)

Since 1974 the Education Centre has been the nationwide non-profit training organisation and advisory centre of the Confederation of German Trade Unions (DGB), responsible for providing information and training on general, political and trade union matters.

Its main task is to communicate knowledge and capacities to workers and their representatives that enable them to have an active say and participate in economic, legal, social and political change processes in the workplace and production facilities. In cooperation with trade unions and European and international project partners, the Education Centre implements trade union development and advisory projects. Major focuses of its work include human and trade union rights, enforcing minimum social standards and core labour standards, sustainable business, the promotion of partners' projects in developing countries, poverty reduction and income generation.
