Driving forward lifelong learning
URTU Learning is ideally situated in Wales to support the development of a skilled and productive workforce through its ‘Lifelong Learning’ project. This is completely funded by the Welsh Government and supported by the Welsh TUC.
URTU members can face multiple barriers to accessing educational opportunities as they work long shifts, unsociable hours and can have a poor culture of workplace learning. URTU reps are therefore best placed to inform, guide, mentor and monitor the quality of any skills training provision especially to existing staff and those just entering into work.
URTU Learning will continue to develop new and progressive bespoke skills assessments, training and learning opportunities for all workers, employees, and their wider communities.
