Professional Learning & Leadership Development

We know that in public schools, community hospitals, colleges and universities, and state and municipal governments, the most important asset is the workforce. AFT Connecticut is committed to improving and strengthening the vital services they deliver by providing access to continuous, high-quality professional development (PD) and career education (CE) at no additional cost to members.

In order to protect, defend and strengthen the professions of the working people we represent, it is arguably even more important to promote and foster labor leadership. Our state federation additionally provides access to education and training to further develop activists at all levels within affiliated local unions.
