TUC website a step forward for lifelong learning

The
TUC has launched a new website to highlight and encourage its promotion of
lifelong learning.

The
site has a range of resources and a discussion forum to help learning
representatives, educationalists, employers and learners keep in touch with the
work of unions in their area.

It
will also feature details and dates of local events and courses, a regular
e-mail bulletin and an interactive quiz.

TUC
general secretary John Monks said that the new initiative will help unions
reach staff that need help the most. "Evidence suggests that union
learning representatives are the most effective at reaching the lowest skilled
workers and those who are the most disadvantaged in accessing training
opportunities, such as part-time workers, those on fixed contracts and shift
workers.

"This
great new website will provide information on learning, showcase union
achievements and support the work of the learning reps," he said.
