Unionlearns new exciting upgraded initial assessment tool is launched today.
SkillCheck is an interactive tool that will aid learners gauge their level of understanding in a number of core areas – and help them plan future learning routes to develop skills for personal and career opportunities.
The tool has three core themes – maths, English and ICT – and has been developed with the support and input from a number of trade unions to ensure it helps Union Learning Reps (ULRs) give the best possible support, advice and guidance to workers looking to improve their skills.
SkillCheck is a flexible learning tool that is ideal for workplace learning centres and group learning sessions organised by ULRs – but is also accessible to individuals who might want to check what level they are currently at before approaching their rep and explore future learning options.
Unionlearn Director Kevin Rowan said:
SkillCheck is an initial assessment tool created by unionlearn for unions to use to help deliver learning in the workplace. SkillCheck contains three learning themes designed to help engage with learners, providing both an initial assessment and a way to encourage further learning.
Unions have always been at the forefront of supporting and encouraging workplace learning – and with SkillCheck unionlearn has developed a fun and exciting tool for taking the first step to check out your English and maths skills, as well as signposting learners to resources for further learning.
It is clear and simple to use and gives users their results straight away."
SkillCheck is available in a number of formats to allow people to use the tool at work, at home or even on the move. It can be downloaded as an app, or accessed through an internet browser.
