The good thing with digital learning is that it offers some flexibility. So whether you are mobile, at home or on the go, you might just be able to find some time to squeeze in a few quick bursts of learning. You might also want to make contact with your learning rep, just in case you are not sure about where to start, and if you are still stuck, you can contact our national team for help.
We’ve developed a strong portfolio of online opportunities that thousands of members have been taking part in over the past few months. But now that more of us are adjusting to the so-called ‘new normal’, more members may be ready to learn something new but worried that they may have missed the boat.
Our message to all our members, and the ULRs that support them, is that you can start online learning today or tomorrow or next week – and UNISON will be there to support you. We’ve compiled some of the opportunities that are available through Learning and Organising Services.
