Learning agreement gives GCHQ staff training opportunities

Staff
at the Government’s communication headquarters (GCHQ) are gaining access to a
range of new training opportunities after the introduction of a union learning
agreement.

The
agreement with the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) will give staff a
range of learning opportunities and sets out plans to develop a network of
trained representatives to help promote personal development.

Paul
Collacott, head of learning and development at GCHQ, said: "We are
continually looking for effective ways of providing more opportunities for
personal development. This partnership gives us additional possibilities."

Union
rights for GCHQ staff were only reintroduced in 1997 after being abolished by
the Conservative government of Margaret Thatcher in 1984.
