Unionlearn has developed a strategic partnership with Tribal to provide the best possible support to union learners, their friends, families and communities. Tribal is a global provider of products and services to the international education, training and learning markets.
Many learning centres and ULF projects are already working with community learners, unemployed adults and those in non-unionised workplaces. The partnership will extend support to any groups of learners unionlearn wants to support.
The partnership is informed by a shared understanding of the diversity of needs, situations and provision that exist across the network of union learning centres and aims to provide:
- access to high quality teaching and learning materials to support English and maths learners, regardless of where learners are in their learning journey.
- increased progression opportunities for learners through improved access to courses, programmes and qualifications that centres may not currently be aware offer. For example, Tribal's range of Vocationally Related Qualifications (VRQs) that more than 700 union learners are currently accessing.
- expert advice on funding and learning opportunities, including how centres may be able to access their own sources of funding.
- help with developing sustainable local partnerships and strategic relationships, including strengthening existing partnerships, or securing new ones.
