New learning resources for UNISON membersFriday, June 8, 2012 – 14:20


The NIACE survey of UNISON members and subsequent report, Skilled for Work (2011), showed that 16% of UNISON members (potentially 210,000) are not confident to apply for promotion, 14% (potentially 182,000) are not confident to take on extra responsibilities at work and 10% (potentially 130,000) are not confident to apply for training courses. It also revealed an unmet appetite for learning at work.

Following these findings, NIACE has worked closely with UNISON to develop a range of materials to support learning for UNISON’s members, which include Hints and tips for getting a job and a Quick Reads Reading Group Toolkit for ULRs.

Davinder Sandu, UNISON Learning and Workforce Development Officer, said:

“UNISON’s partnership with NIACE has been useful in helping to address our members’ learning needs. NIACE’s research and readability expertise was invaluable in producing a survey which over 27,000 members responded to. UNISON regards NIACE as its critical friend and supporter.”
