You are invited to attend:


Unionlearn annual conference July 2015

Monday, July 6, 2015 from 10:00am - 3.00pm
Congress House, London
"Changing lives through learning"
Unionlearn is the learning and skills organisation of the TUC. Unionlearn works to assist unions in the delivery of learning opportunities for their members as well as managing the £14 million Union Learning Fund (ULF). Over the past 13 years, more than 30,000 union learning representatives (ULRs) have been trained and 220,000 people are being given training and learning opportunities through their union every year. Unionlearn is also responsible for providing education and training opportunities for workplace reps and professionals via TUC Education. Each year more than 50,000 trade union reps enrol in trade union education courses organised by the TUC.

It is a great pleasure to extend an invitation to you to attend unionlearn's eighth annual conference on Monday 6th July 2015. The event will be held at Congress House in London and is entitled "The union skills advantage". A broad agenda will focus on skills development through learning of individuals and communities, meeting the needs of a modern workforce, and the vital role of skills in a sustainable economic recovery and that learning matters.
The conference is of course a chance to celebrate our work over the past year as well as looking forward to the year ahead and we will be celebrating achievements with the unionlearn Quality Awards.
Speakers confirmed so far include Frances O'Grady, TUC General Secretary.
The draft outline programme for the event is:
  • 09:00 - Registration and exhibitions
  • 10:00 - Conference starts; plenary
  • 12:30 - Lunch and networking
  • 13:30 - Workshops
Please sign up as soon as possible, as there is always a high demand to attend the conference. We have limited space and want to try to ensure everyone can be accommodated.
