Usdaw’s Lifelong Learning Campaign

Tuesday, May 3, 2011

Meg Munn MP recently attended the annual conference of Usdaw in Blackpool, the trade union she is a member of.  Whilst she was there she took the opportunity to catch up with the Usdaw Lifelong Learning Campaign which the union encourages its members to take part in. The campaign helps to develop their skills at work, and since the introduction by the last Labour Government of the Union Learn Fund, they have been working hard to increase the number of members involved in learning.


Lifelong learning campaign organiser Ann Murphy told Meg how they have developed 50 learning centres in collaboration with companies where Usdaw members work. They have also recruited and trained over 500 union learning representatives from Usdaw members who encourage other members into training.


Locally a recent example of the success is the provision of a wide range of courses for union members at Northern College near Barnsley. Courses for members without qualifications are free, and for those already with qualifications are at a low price. Ann and colleague Neil Chapman told Meg of their concern that the current government will not continue to fund this training beyond the next financial year.
