WULF: the first nine months

WULF? The Wales Union Learning Fund project. It’s been part of UNISON Cymru/Wales for nine months now, and great things are happening.

Project workers Jenny Griffin and Richard Speight explain:

We’re continuing to put on courses all over Wales for those working in schools, health or social care. Our current Social Care Programme has seen a great deal of interest and led us to put on a number more courses covering the social care topics.

We’re creating an innovative learning programme for Betsi Cadwaladr UHB’s Estates & Facilities workers alongside Unison’s North Wales Health Branch, Digital Communities Wales and Addysg Oedolion Cymru | Adult Learning Wales. We want to get this group of NHS staff directly involved in designing new opportunities to develop the skills and confidence they will need as new digital technology is introduced into their workplaces. More news to follow soon….

We’re continuing to offer amazing learning opportunities in a wide range of topics. Our amazing course tutors have helped over 600 learners.

We’ve got new contact information and we’ve recently got a new team member – Elliot – who will become the first port of call for enquiries and information.

They’ve organised courses including:

  • De-escalating Confrontation and Confidence Building
  • Coping With Change
  • Confirming Staff Competencies and Observation Skills
  • Professional Boundaries
  • Managing for the First Time
  • Report Writing in a Social Care Setting
  • Communication Skills
  • Working with Compulsive Hoarders
  • Managing Stress at Work and Being More Assertive
  • Introduction to Neurodiversity
  • Values and Principles

WULF courses are for members and non-members living in Cymru/Wales who work in schools, health, or social care. You can contact the WULF team on:
