In late November unionlearn wrapped up its annual Supporting Learners series of regional events in Leeds. During the autumn unionlearn had held events across the country aimed at supporting Union Learning Reps and promoting workplace learning.
The 2018 events tied in with the 150th anniversary of the TUC and interest in the ways that trade unions can support workplace learning and skills was very high – with over 350 reps and officers registering.
This year the events focused on a number of key areas including:
*) Mental Health at Work
*) The National Retraining Scheme
*) How to write a blog
There was also updates on the latest resources available and new TUC Education offers, an opportunity to talk to unionlearn staff about individual workplaces needs and a chance to network with fellow ULRs from across the regions.
Unionlearn Service Team Manager Ian Borkett said:
Regional Supporting Learners events are always a highlight of the unionlearn year. It is not only a chance to get out and about and tell reps about the latest resources we can offer them, but’s a great opportunity for unionlearn staff to hear about what is happening in the regions and ideas from ULRs about how we can support workplace learning in the future.”
