The Workers' College

Address: 127 Gale Street
City: Durban
Country: South Africa
Phone Number: 27 32 3040260
General Information: The Workers' College was formally launched on the 4th July 1991. It was born out of the need to provide education, training and skills development to the labour movement in the Kwazulu/Natal region. The College sought to build and strengthen the skills capacity of the labour movement in the region by providing accredited union programmes.
The Workers' College is housed in James Bolton Hall, 127 Gale Street, Durban. It is easily accessible for workers, as it is located in the primary industrial area in Durban. In addition it is within close proximity of all the trade union regional offices and is located on the main bus route.

The College is equipped with three offices, a work room, board room, resource centre, three training rooms and a canteen. The College is currently establishing a computer resource room.

The impact of the Workers' College in Kwazulu/Natal goes beyond what would traditionally be expected of an educational institution. It was originally set up at a time when the region was torn apart through political tensions and violence. The College acted then, and still does, as a melting pot for the various diverse ethnicity, cultures, language, political and federation affiliation. This perhaps has endured as the College's legacy - its inherent ability to bring together trade unionists from different unions, federations as well as the independent unions to engage in debates that are constructive and progressive
