In the Midlands we have two learning networks that meet to discuss and plan learning activity with the region. They ensure that through these meetings members in the region are able to access local learning opportunities on topics that they are interested in.
With a partnership agreement with Solihull college and a range of events across the region we aims to cover as many issues for as many members as possible. We have held events on the new Ofsted Framework, IT taster sessions for support and supply staff, and stress, which have proved popular over the past few months.
As members in the Midlands 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.
