A project that aims to improve learning pathways
TUC Equal "High Road" Project Regional Workshop : Thursday 19th January 2006 between 10.30 and 13.00 at
Durham, Marriot Royal County Hotel, Old Elvert, DURHAM City D1 3JN
‘This project has as its aim, a contribution toward actions which provide opportunity for all to secure, retain and progress in rewarding employment by improving learning pathways.
A number of work packages are planned to take this forward; and these are to develop:
information services, briefing and training materials which enable Trade Union, Community and Equal Opportunity representatives to influence local, regional and sectoral training and development plans. We would hope that this influence will help ensure that plans take account of social inclusion and equal opportunity issues.
a better link between pre-entry and in work learning. Elements of this will include developing brokerage services, allowing a variety of experience to be recognised and valued, and that working and learning systems take account of individual needs.
a Union Academy which will bring together guidance and learning services for workplace learners. The Academy will have as a specific purpose promoting and facilitating equal opportunities in workplace learning, and will also seek to empower workplace learners to gain the skills they need for career progression.
This will be of a particular interest to Unions, Union Learning Reps, Employers, Learning Providers, Regional Learning and Skills Council’s, Voluntary and Community Sector and other Partners.
Numbers will be limited, so to avoid disappointment please reply as soon as possible using the reply doc (within the letter).
