Join unionlearn at two events for trade unions and other partners to hear about the learning and skills opportunities of the new Career Learning Pilots.
The events in early July will cover the West Yorkshire Combined Authority / Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership Career Learning Pilot and the Devon and Somerset Career Learning Pilot.
Leeds City Region works in partnership with local councils and businesses to ensure that everyone in the region benefits from a strong, successful economy.
The pilots in West Yorkshire and Devon and Somerset are two of five nationally which will be testing out ideas for attracting learners by offering subsidised courses at different levels and exploring approaches to outreach and engagement with potential learners. The pilots will also help inform the forthcoming National Retraining Scheme.
Union officers, union learning reps and trade unionists involved in the learning agenda are all invited to attend this event.
Delegates will hear about the pilot, the target areas within the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Devon and Somerset, the courses and subsidies (of between 25% and 100%) that may be available to your members.
They will also learn about the potential to receive subsidised travel when taking a course and get the chance to share views and ideas to engage with this pilot.
There will be presentations by the local authorities, unionlearn and other partners.
The Leeds event takes place at Leeds City Museum on Tue 3rd July from 10.00 to 13.00 and the Taunton event takes place in the city on Wed 4th July from 9.30 to 14.00
There will be refreshments and a buffet lunch available at both events.
