PCS what's on 13 to 19 December

We have a busy week planned in our last round of training of the year with courses for advocates, help with preparing for AGMs and a workshop on success profiles and applying for jobs. 

Advocates tell us about your experience so far

We are asking PCS Advocates to tell us about their experience of the role by completing a short survey which we have emailed to them.
