Over the past 12 years, more than 36,000 Union Learning Representatives (ULRs) have been trained and nearly a quarter of a million people are being given training and learning opportunities through their union every year. Unionlearn is also responsible for providing education and training opportunities for workplace reps and professionals via TUC Education.

Unionlearn Director Kevin Rowan said:

The event will reflect on our achievements, including ULR awards, and look ahead to key priorities such as negotiating more high-quality apprenticeships and helping young people make the transition into work or further training.”

A broad agenda will focus on skills development through learning of individuals and communities, meeting the needs of a modern workforce, and supporting high quality apprenticeships to boost social justice, productivity and the UK skills base.

The conference is of course a chance to celebrate our work over the past year as well as looking forward to the year ahead.
