Union Learning Representatives Two
WHO’S THIS COURSE FOR?
This online course is for union learning reps (ULRs) who have some experience and/or have completed the Union Learning Reps 1 course (certificate or online). This follow-on course will help you develop your learning project management skills further and work with learners who have particular needs.
HOW WILL IT HELP ME?
This course will build on your existing ULR skills and help you:
- address your own development needs as a ULR
- use technology to make your work easier
- manage your tasks and projects effectively
- work with partners, employers and providers
- collect information to support learners and your union
- arrange accessible learning and support a wider range of learners
- use your ULR role to recruit members and strengthen your union.
WILL COMPLETING THE COURSE MEAN I’M A QUALIFIED LEARNING REP?
Yes, although you will need to demonstrate to your union that you are an active rep before your employer recognises you as a union learning rep. Contact your own union office to find out more. If you’re aiming to become a ULR it’s a good idea to let your union know before you start this course. They’ll be able to give you advice and offer support. And if you’re not already a general union rep we advise you to complete the Union Reps 1 course, in addition to Union Learning Reps 1, before you take this course.
HOW DO I COMPLETE IT?
All you need is an internet-enabled mobile device (a phone or tablet) or a computer. The course is arranged into short activities you can complete in 5-15 minutes. Do as little or as much as you like each time you log on — your progress will always be saved. Next time you log on just pick up where you left off.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
That will vary from person to person. The classroom Union Learning Reps 2 course has 30 contact hours, but most people will complete this online version in far fewer hours. Don’t rush it though - it’s important to go at the pace that suits you. Select the button below to get started.
