Unionlearn has launched a new training partnership with The Skills Network, offering funded qualifications via distance learning.
Unionlearn has signed an agreement to work with The Skills Network, to give union members, friends and colleagues access to a wide range of free, fully accredited, courses.
The Skills Network is one of the most successful providers of online courses and qualifications in the UK, and their distance learning platform is a way of learning remotely without needing to attend classroom lessons.
This allows learners to study at their own pace, in their own home or workplace learning centre, at a time that fits around people’s busy lives. Learners have the freedom to revisit areas of the course as little or as much as they need without having to keep the same pace as others. There is also full support from tutors via email.
There are over 30 fully funded courses to choose from including:
- Level 2 Certificate in IT User Skills
- Level 2 Certificate in Event Planning
- Level 2 Certificate in Awareness of Mental Health Problems
- Level 2 Certificate in Understanding Retail Operations
Unionlearn Director Kevin Rowan said:
Workers consistently tell us that time and money are two big barriers to training and gaining new skills. Union Learning Reps work with employers to negotiate time and our new learning partnership with The Skills Network is a fantastic opportunity for workplace learners to access a range of courses.
The courses are fully accredited at Level 2 and can be studied at the learner’s own pace – allowing working people to build up skills they need to help with both professional and personal development.
