1. Organising Union Learning
Union learning is accepted as a driver in improving skills and learning opportunities for workers but it can also be fundamental in creating a fairer workplace. This workshop will describe the challenges and solutions in organising learning.
2. Equality and Learning: How to make the case for equality in your union and workplace
Making the case for equality in learning and development opportunities can often involve difficult conversations with union colleagues, employers, or others in the workplace. How do we make the case for equality in and equality of learning? An interactive workshop om these issues, using drama-based delivery from Interactive Learning Solutions, and content developed for Scottish Union Learning Equality Rep Development Days.
3. Digital Unions: Introduction to coding for the web
Scotland aspires to be a high-performing digital economy, and coding has become a valuable digital skill. Coding is the language used to tell computers what to do, and it also operates the software in phones, gaming devices and household appliances. This session will introduce you to coding for the web, using the latest technologies.
4. Organising Learning for Young and Precarious Workers
Trade unions can find it difficult to organise in precarious industries such as hospitality. However, using the learning agenda, campaigns such as Better than Zero are bringing young workers from non-unionised workplaces into the labour movement. This workshop will provide an overview of the campaign, the education on offer for non-unionised young workers and explore how the learning agenda can be used for organising in precarious workplaces
