Don’t let the government cut union learning!
In early October, the TUC received a letter from the Department for Education saying that ministers have decided to end the Union Learning Fund from March 2021. This is an astonishing and counterproductive decision – last year more than 200,000 learners got new skills through union learning.
Save union learning! Never more than ever have we needed the support of our learners, members ,friends and family!
For more than 20 years the Union Learning Fund has supported working people to access skills and training at work, through their unions.
Last year more than 200,000 learners got new skills through union learning. The government funding teaches people to read, write and use computers: last year 62,000 got basic English, maths and IT skills through union learning. And thousands got their first ever qualification. Only unions, through our network of reps, have been able to reach these workers and help them get into learning. In the middle of the deepest recession of our lifetimes, this is not the time to cut skills and training. The government must reverse this decision – and keep learners learning.
Here in the south west region the union learning fund has supported so many events that our members have benefitted from taking part in. These have included job and application interview training, wellbeing and relaxation courses and education for women’s rights to name a few. In times of change and uncertainty we need your help to stop the government cutting these vital funds.
