TUC South West event explores the changing world of work

TUC South West is organising an event in Bristol next February that will give reps the opportunity to explore “Work, Skills and Going Digital”, and find out the impact future changes could have on their members.

Digital Skills

Workplaces are becoming more reliant on evolving IT systems and new technology. But it can be hard to keep up, especially when the offer of digital skills and adult learning has not kept pace with demand and change.

Digitisation and automation affects all industries and jobs, and every generation. Even the way we live and participate in society and our local communities has transformed.

Ines Lang, TUC South West Policy and Campaigns Officer said:

The world of work is changing fast.”

If we are to continue engaging with the evolving nature of work, we need to learn new skills: from downloading your payslip to accessing your online bank account, and from controlling new machinery and technology to do your day-to-day job, to learning about a new system at work - our lives are changing.”

This event, sponsored by unionlearn, presents ideas and workshops on how we can use our workplaces to provide more learning opportunities on digital and other skills to prepare us for the future.

Workshops and sessions:

  • The future of our workplaces
  • The case for digital learning - the NHS case study
  • Getting social with digital: how can we engage with colleagues
  • National Retraining Scheme update
  • Equality and diversity in digital

The event is free and takes place on Thursday 13th Feb 2020 from 10:30 to 16:00 at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in Bristol City Centre.
