The Union Learning Fund for Northern Ireland 2017 – 2020
Raising the skills level of the workforce in a key priority of the Northern Ireland Executive skills agenda and the support and endeavour of the Trade Unions has a key part to play in achieving this goal.
Union-led learning is a tremendous success story. It has helped many people to transform their lives, and has opened up new opportunities through access to learning and developing new skills to aid progression within the workplace and to succeed at everyday life.
The Irish Congress of Trade Unions plays a pivotal role in this by working in conjunction with the Department for the Economy to make Union Learning Fund and all other aspects of Union –lead learning a success. We will continue to work to strengthen and expand on the good work of the previous ULF projects in order to make the new 2017-2020 projects even more effective.
We therefore look forward to receiving bids from a wide range of Unions and to working with them to build on the many achievements of the Union Learning Fund to date.
