The Union Advent: 2 Dec

02 Dec 2009, By

Helping members access education and training is a key priority for unions.

Each year the TUC (through its learning organisation, unionlearn) helps unions to get members access learning opportunities. In 2008 over 230,000 union members were helped into learning. These programmes cover everything from supporting workers who want to develop literacy, numeracy and ICT skills to continuing professional development. In the last ten years over 400,000 trade union reps have been trained in the key skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to make a difference in the workplace.
