Cutting the cost of learning with UNISON

Cutting the cost of learning with UNISON 

UNISON

As a trade union UNISON believes that learning, education and training for our members is very important. We have agreed a range of discounts on a whole host of courses, from many different providers.

Our national website has a dedicated section for learning, and you can view it by clicking here. In this section you will find a whole host of information, including how UNISON is cutting the cost of learning.

This includes courses with the National Extension College, Open College of the Arts, e-Careers, University of Wolverhampton and more. There are many different subjects and levels, such as GCSEs, A-levels, degrees as well as learning for the enjoyment of it. With subjects such as project management, languages and IT to name but a few, it is well a look to see what is available and what discounts there are.
