Productive Learning Project (Phase3)

A key aim of the Productive Learning Project Phase 3 will be the continuation and expansion of workplace and life-long learning not only to existing members but to those not yet engaged with the union learning agenda throughout the Yorkshire & North Derbyshire Region.

Building GMB’s army of Trade Union Learner Representatives is crucial to this vision along with negotiating more learning agreements & enhancing current ones from previous successful projects.

The project will also build its connection with the GMB’s Industrial officers which will not only allow assistance with recruiting Trade Union Learner Reps but will also assist with the Apprenticeship Levy which was introduced on the 6th April 2017.

Many Workplaces where GMB has recognition will have to pay this levy, so the project and workplace representatives should be able to deliver a membership benefit of service where a GMB member is engaged by an employer onto an apprenticeship training program.

The project will continue to assist both GMB members and potential members with their educational self-development by addressing the current skills gap and skills shortages prevalent in the UK economy, increasing individual employability through tailored courses for those seeking employment and ensuring quality education and training for those in work seeking progression.

Utilising its regional learning centres the Productive Learning Project will also target community learning initiatives to help remedy the areas of deprivation and neglect associated with the failure of traditional educational routes.
