The Union Advent: 11 Dec
Alan Jones was introduced to the Knowsley College Trade Union Education Centre, Merseyside, by a friend after he left work due to ill health. No longer able to do manual work, Alan realised that his best chance of future employment was to learn how to use a computer.
Alan’s most recent achievement was gaining an ITQ Level 2 earlier this year, but the impact of his learning continues. After a short time volunteering for the Citizens’ Advice Bureau, Alan has finally achieved his goal and gained a permanent position in administration at the Ministry of Defence. He plans to encourage his friends and
family to take advantage of the same union opportunities he has enjoyed.
