The unionlearn Quality Award has been available to learning providers and careers information and advice support services since 2007, with a third award later added for Apprenticeship programmes. Although the Awards already given to providers for Information, Advice and Guidance remain active, following review in 2016, this award has been integrated into two remaining awards:
- Course programmes
- Apprenticeship programmes (Employer pathway)
The Award is given for programmes that meet our good practice criteria and that help signpost union learning reps (ULRs) and learners to providers that are working successfully and flexibly with unions. The Award also celebrates the commitment and diligence of ULRs across the country who promote training and learning in the workplace on behalf of union members. The Awards have been updated to ensure they are in line with current workplace learning agendas. They remain a standard by which the quality of provision for union learners can be judged and continue to be a valued and sought after accolade.
