Member Learning

Learning doesn’t need to stop when we leave formal education and if we want to move forward in a career then continuous learning is essential.

Many of us will not have had positive early education experiences, and returning to learning can be daunting. But UNISON, and the partners we work with, will ensure that if you take that courageous step you will find out that learning can be fun as well as valuable.

Try our free workshops and explore the skills you have, how to make the most of them and how to develop new ones.

You can find when these courses are running by checking out our upcoming courses.
