Unison's new toolkit for ULRs "Learning for Everyone"

Lynn and I, along with Unison WULF project workers from across Wales, attended Unison's national Learning in the Public Services conference at Congress House in London yesterday. It was a fantastic event and we all really enjoyed meeting new people, sharing ideas and learning new things. The conference saw the launch of the new informal learning toolkit "Learning for Everyone", designed to help ULRs (and lifelong learning projects) organise informal learning in their workplaces.

Here's an online copy of the toolkit, so have a click around.

Wales TUC WULF Celebration on 15th March @ Unite in Cardiff

I will be speaking about the success of the project at the Wales TUC's celebration event this coming Wednesday. I'm really looking forward to it. I think that the focus will be on what we've done with Knowing Me, Knowing You; the innovations we've pioneered in creating connectedlearnerscymru; the INCLUSIVE EU partnership and our great Introduction to British Sign Language course. 
If you want to be there, get in touch with us at connecting.learners@cartreficymru.org and check out the details at http://bit.ly/wulf2011
