Usdaw’s Lifelong Learning Campaign was launched in 1998.
It aims to provide members, many of whom feel they missed out at school, with the chance to get back to learning to help them both for their own personal development and to improve their career opportunities.
Learning boosts employees’ confidence, improves morale and gives employers a more motivated and skilled workforce.
Since 2003 more than 74,000 members have returned to some sort of learning and more than 1,800 Union Learning Reps have been trained during the last 11 years.
Usdaw has agreed partnerships to access learning with many major companies including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Wincanton, Next, DHL, CRL, McVities and Unilever.
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.
