Unite Learning Reps Organising Learning & the Workplace

30 Oct

During the last few months Unite Learning Reps from different employers including BAE Systems, Rolls-Royce, Strathclyde Partnership for Transport, Mahle Engine Systems and British Airways have been carrying out Learning Needs Surveys within their workplaces.

The workplace Learning surveys have had a great response with thousands of learning requests from our members wanting to take up Unite’s Life Long Learning Opportunities. The learning requests of the members are now being delivered upon within workplaces with the commencing of courses this quarter within the surveyed workplaces.

The ULRs used different methods of surveying their workplaces that best suited the members within that employer. Some used a hard printed copy of their survey other used electronic copies circulated by email. All surveys were bespoken to each workplace and sector.

Regardless of which method of circulation and collection the ULRs used they used Survey Monkey an online survey tool that provides sophisticated analysis of responses to analyse the responses. The analysis of these workplace surveys are also a great Organising tool for our Unite workplace committees, providing then with valuable data that can be used for Organising, Mapping and Collective Bargaining purposes within the workplace.
