UNISON GM Fire and Civil Defence branch held a Learning Event in late January, with help from Organisers, Learning colleagues, Unionlearn, branch members and providers.
The event was busy, with members and non members who were interesting in joining UNISON taking information and talking to providers to plan their learning journey. Action On Hearing Loss were there to take people through finger spelling and we have had interest in a Deaf Awareness course, so we are currently talking with one of the other unions onsite, the FBU, to arrange a course.
Branch SecretaryPaul Warburton said; “It’s great to see so many peopole coming to talk to us and engage in learning. Hopefully we can take take this interest forward and start a series of courses.”
With so many lifelong learning courses available, that is certainly possible!
