Tim Brooks, London and South-East

Tim works with ATL branches and lay members on the planning, developing and organising of union-led learning in the branch and workplace. Many branches are linking union learning to their branch development and engaging with their members through a diverse range of professional development and lifelong learning opportunities.

For example: in London, London Wide, the CPD network for London-based members provides a rolling programme of guest speakers, training and professional development opportunities at the central London office. In Hampshire, the branch ULR is creating new union-led learning in various country locations like the University of Winchester and even heritage sites. Meanwhile in Croydon the branch secretary has established a robust programme of professional development at a school on a Saturday mornings.
