What's available through the Unite learning programme?

24 Mar

Unite is a large and diverse union, and our members have different needs. As much as possible, our learning programme tries to meet that need, and we provide everything from one to one literacy support through to vocational qualifications and university degrees.

Usually we survey a workplace to find out what members want to learn, and design a learning programme based on that. Once we have an idea of what the learning need is, we can begin to negotiate with colleges and funders to deliver the learning.

Some of the courses we have run over the past year include:

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Pensions
  • Basic IT
  • e-Revolution
  • PC Passport
  • ECDL
  • Learning to Learn Online
  • Report Writing and Minute Taking
  • Public Speaking
  • Communications and Team Work
  • Spanish
  • Italian
  • British Sign Language
  • Open University Openings courses
  • Open University BEng engineering degrees
  • 17th Edition Wiring Regulations
  • PAT Testing
  • MET1
  • Green Driving and Fuel Efficiency

We don’t guarantee that we can deliver all these courses all the time, because this depends on funding, but we will always do our best to meet members’ needs.

Here is a downloadable booklet that gives an overview of the Unite learning programme for members: Unite booklet Jan 2010
