Unionlearn publishes guide to workplace learning funding

Unionlearn in the North West has produced a guide to help workplace learners and employers discover what funding is available for progression to higher education.

Dave Eva, unionlearn's regional manager, said: "One of the key barriers people see to developing themselves is finding the course fees and the other costs of learning. We hope that this leaflet will help people find out what funding help exists and how to access it.

"It is important that Union Learning Reps (ULRs) know how to best advise members and are able to ensure employers make best use of state funding, such as Train to Gain.

"Unionlearn and unions are also looking at other initiatives, such as collective learning funds and the new Skills Accounts, to help make sure that funding is obtained by those who most need it."

The 'Money Matters' leaflet was launched at an event in Prestwich, near Manchester, attended by Union Learning Reps and workplace learners. The event included workshops and presentations on Train to Gain, apprenticeships and Skills for Life.
