The Learn with Unite team comprises seven union learning organisers who are spread across the region supporting over 200 Unite workplace union learning representatives (ULRs) promoting lifelong learning in their workplaces and communities.
Their roles are heavily focused on the recruitment and training of our ULRs in order to achieve sustainable workplace learning models for our members and to grow our branch structures even stronger.
Our team’s regional learning responsibilities are very much a support mechanism. In the community we have been supporting the Unite/NUM centre in Barnsley, training their volunteers and activists in a variety of subjects, with such activities mirrored at the Unite/NUM centre at Redhills in Durham.
As a team we also offer a full redundancy support programme to our members and have supported over 4000 Unite members over the past three years, as well as tying in Unite's ‘back to work’ and retention strategy to benefit our members.
To contact a learning organiser in your area please refer to the contact list below and we will be happy to meet and discuss opportunities.
