About Lifelong Learning

Get back into learning

Over 74,000 Usdaw members have returned to a form of learning since the launch of Usdaw’s Lifelong Learning campaign in 1998. Members can benefit from a vast array of online, distance and workplace-based learning opportunities on subjects from English, Maths, and IT to sign language and photography.

Learning is a great way to boost your confidence and skills, and is proven to lift your confidence and morale at work. Usdaw has agreements to provide learning centres at many major companies including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Wincanton, DHL, Next, CRL, McVities and Unilever.

Whatever you’re interested in, there’s never been a better time to get back into learning with Usdaw.

How this helps you

Through our Lifelong Learning Campaign, we are opening doors for members who want to increase their skills and knowledge and improve their career prospects by offering on-site courses in conjunction with companies, local colleges and other course providers.

Thousands of members have returned to learning to study basic maths and English, IT, and introductory language classes. Courses in sign language, digital photography and others have proved popular too.
