Ever wanted to be a bit more creative at work? Wanted to try something new but don’t have the time? This were questions asked by Usdaw and The More than a Sandwich project who brought song-writing, origami, poetry, and life-writing into workplaces in Elmsall, Goole, and Castleford.
Following the success of unionlearn’s Career Kickstart Review training events that took place last year, extra sessions have been added this March.
The team of Usdaw learning reps at DHL Castleford have run a National Numeracy pilot that helped one of their less confident learners.
Each year unionlearn staff organise a number of campaigns around skills to encourage unions to get involved with workplace learning – and 2020 is going to be no different with a full range of annual campaigns and a few new ones.
I’d like to wish all our reps and learners a happy and successful new year from the whole unionlearn team.
