What’s the URTU Learning Project about?

URTU Learning has been created by the United Road Transport Union (URTU) and runs projects in England, Scotland and Wales.  The projects mission is to assist and guide every individual in all aspects of learning to unlock their potential.

The URTU Learning project aims are to visit workplaces and communities within in England, Scotland and Wales to promote learning and support learners. The project could not do this alone, so we rely on Union Learning Representatives (ULR’s) to help us promote education within their workplace. They are able to offer free information and advice to learners, as well as guiding them with their educational journey.

ULR’s are union members who volunteer for the role and they are fully trained and supported by the union to carry out their position. They do this by attending accredited union training courses at college. To find out more about the role go to the “Union Learning Representative” page within this website.

We have created the URTU Learning website to assist all learners and to help the URTU promote the project. Within the site you will find a wealth of information and resources in the following areas:

  • Resources – Information useful resources which are available to learners nationwide.
  • Learning – Information on free learning courses which are available to all learners nationwide.
  • Health & Wellbeing – Information on issues that could affect your health and wellbeing, and links to external services which can provide support to people.
  • Events – Information on educational events that are happening throughout the year and how you can get involved in these.
  • Get Involved – Information about the benefits of the union, fun competitions the project run throughout the year and news pages to keep you up today on what the project is doing.
  • ULR – There is information within this section to support ULR’s in their role.

 

What next?

 

If you want to find out more about the project and how it could help you or your workplace speak to your ULR if your site has one, or contact a member of the Project Team. You can find out about our Project Team and how to contact them by visiting the ‘Meet the Team’ page. The team are here to support and develop your skills and training opportunities through free courses and union education events.

The URTU Learning team can help you develop a partnership with your employer in:

  • Supporting ULRs in the workplace and encouraging employees to get involved with the learning agenda.
  • Breaking down barriers which could include time off; access; discrimination; unsupportive managers; shift work; isolation or screening for Dyslexia.
  • Developing individual courses with support from educational provider partnerships to help support learner needs
