Unionlearn will be holding a regional Supporting Learners event at Newcastle this October.

The event, run in conjunction with the Northern TUC, will be held at the Newcastle’s County Hotel on Thursday 12th October.

The Newcastle Supporting Learners event is one of six organised across England in October and November 2017. The events are aimed at an audience of ULRs, union reps, officers and union learning project staff.

The event will be packed with useful information and resources, and include a unionlearn Supporting Learners update focusing on national and regional initiatives and campaigns around workplace learning. The day will also explore developments in unionlearns priority areas of apprenticeships, maths and English skills.

There will be an activity about the new reps training offer from TUC Education, along with sessions on mentoring and the benefits of linking the supporting learner’s agenda with union organising.

There will also be an opportunity for reps to share their own local knowledge and workplace learning experience, along with plenty of time to network.

Beth Farhat, Regional Secretary at the Northern TUC, will open the conference and said; “Learning and skills are vital to the local economy, and unions have been at the forefront of promoting high quality apprenticeships, along with sound English and maths in workplaces across the region.”

“The Northern region has some brilliant examples of workplace learning ranging from the Bridges To Learning Project to Mental Health First Aid training – and its unions and their reps that are supporting learners and improving workplace skills.”

The Newcastle event is on Thursday 12th October, will run from 10.00 am to 3.30 pm and include lunch
