UGC – Addysg Drwy Gyfathrebu Yng Nghymru

CWU – Education through Communication in Wales

This is the project name for the latest CWU bid to WULF (Wales Union Learning Fund). This bid is for 3 years and the good news is that it has been successful!

The Welsh Government’s strategy, “Skills that Work for Wales” has led the CWU into developing this project with aims which link directly to the skills plan. The main outcome of the project will be to enhance development of solutions tackling workplace skills shortages throughout the communications industries in Wales.

We will look to further the success that we have had with previous funding by supporting our network of ULRs (Union Learning Reps) and encouraging more members to take an active part in Lifelong Learning in Wales. We will focus on improving the learning opportunities through new and existing learning centres, enabling all our members to access learning regardless of geography.

Delivery of learning embedded redundancy support events will provide our ULRs with greater awareness of key issues in maintaining and improving employability whilst working closely with our partners within Wales TUC, E-skills and Skills for Logistics Sector Skills Councils, Royal Mail and BT ensuring our members receive learning opportunities that provide genuine transferable/generic skills.

A specific focus will be to concentrate on workers lacking basic and key skills (Essential Skills) as well as providing ongoing support to increase digital inclusion, helping our members to maintain and improve employability in a challenging economic climate.

Targeting of under represented groups including ethnic minorities is a major issue and this funding will enhance our capacity to deliver community learning across all our education services throughout Wales, ensuring we provide equality of learning opportunity to these groups.

Welsh is also high on our agenda and we will be providing courses as well as encouraging our members to attend local coffee mornings and day schools, where Welsh is spoken for the duration of the event, building their confidence whilst increasing the number of Welsh speakers in Wales.

If you require further information, are interested in learning and/or becoming a trained ULR please do not hesitate to contact Kim Johnson, CWU Project Worker for Wales.
