  2. The dangers of labelling!

    What is labelling? Labeling can pack a powerful punch. We are taught, and force fed to use labels from an early age. We are encouraged to call ourselves and others different labels. Many of us become accomplished at labeling, especially about bad qualities and problems, from medical illnesses, addictions to how we look or act. People can easily get lost in their labels, and eventually we all absorb them. However positive labelling can be motivating, enabling and encouraging people to take action and make a real change to their life. You can use a positive label for someone that is really ‘empathic’ which means they treat all people the same, according to notions of fairness and justice; not letting personal feelings bias decisions about others; giving everyone a fair chance.
  3. Changing the workplace

    Article written by, Martin Moriarty A high-quality Apprenticeship programme can help change a workplace for the better A partnership between road transport union URTU, logistics giant XPO and provider Free2Learn has enabled more than 60 contract, agency and managerial staff at the Weetabix distribution centre in Burton Latimer, Northamptonshire, to improve their skills by enrolling them on a range of Apprenticeships from Level 2 to Level 5. The programme launched 18 months ago, with close to half the staff at the site currently working on Apprenticeships in warehousing, business administration, team leading and management.
  4. URTU Learning Annual Conference

    This year’s URTU Learning Annual Conference was held at the De Vere Orchard Hotel, Nottingham. The conference opened its doors to not only ULR’s but to all union Lay Representatives, employers and providers. The conference covered two important themes which will impact learners and companies this coming project year. The first theme was the Apprenticeship Levey which comes into effect on the 6th April 2017. The second theme was Digital Inclusion, with the ever expanding growth of technology. How this technology can not only assist able people in their lives, but how it has a greater advantage to people with disabilities.
