The South West TUC has launched a campaign that aims to ensure that apprentices understand their rights as they enter the workforce. One company that they hold as an example of a good scheme is Bristol Port.
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.
TUC South West are holding an event in Bristol next month to launch of a positive campaign around apprenticeships in the West of England region. The campaign includes a simple to use calculator so apprentices can get to know their minimum wage rights from day one.
