ATL

Northern

Welcome to the Northern region's learning page. In the Northern region we have a learning network based in the North East and a fledgling network in South Yorkshire. We have ULRs and branches working throughout the region to discuss and plan learning activity with the region and make sure that the events we hold are relevant and interesting. Last term we had over 300 members get involved in learning in the region.

Learning events that we have offered have included creativity in the classroom, raising boys achievement and behaviour management.

As a member in the Northern region you can get involved through completing a learning needs survey, attending an event or getting involved to become a union learning rep. This term a number of branches are undertaking learning needs surveys and will be using these to shape the events that will be on offer.

This term we are running events on protecting your professional online identity, and stress management and well-being.
