Hyndburn Local Government UNISON branch had an impressive spread of activities for Adult Learner’s Week, a joint effort between Hyndburn UNISON Branch and the council’s skills development group and Health & Wellbeing Team. From hanging basket demonstrations to Nordic walking, resilience training to origami tasters via English and Maths checkups and NHS Health checks, over 100 learners attended sessions.
UNISON ULR lead Louise Evans said; “We always like to do something for Adult Learner’s Week, as we are really dedicated to learning here and the Council support us in giving time for staff to attend. Staff really enjoyed the sessions and some have already formed a regular boxercise group. We are Living and Learning all the time and I already have some ideas of what I will do next time! We are delighted that we’ve been able to secure Union Learning Funding with the help of our Regional Learning Organiser Steve Swift for a Digital Inclusion project, we already have 12 Digital Champions trained including some councillors, who are supporting the project closely – we are starting work on it already!”
Hyndburn UNISON branch is one to look out for – their learning journey is already well advanced! Please follow Hyndburn on Twitter @hyndDC to see their digital journey.
