The Learning Journey


  • The Learner

    Wants to learn, to discover and develop their talents. Maybe it's a course suited to their work, or something outside of their daily job. Learning starts with the learner and each learner's journey is different.

  • The ULR (where present)

    The Union Learning Rep (ULR) talks to and assess the learners needs, helps find courses, works on learning agreements with employers and supports learners on their "learning journey". In the absence of the ULR, the Aim High Project Team fulfil this role.

  • The Employer

    The company or organiser the learner works for. Working with the ULR embed learning into collective bargaining agreements or setting up a standalone learning agreement. Allowing learners paid release to develop their talents.

  • The Learning Provider

    Working with the ULRs to develop courses for learners, supporting the learners throughout and guiding them to their qualification.

The GMB Aim High Project attempts to bring all four elements above together. The Project Workers are working with a variety of different Learning Providers, sourcing courses and locations for various different courses, at different levels.

As part of one of the UKs biggest Trade Unions, GMB, the project works with reps all over the London Region, encouraging reps and members to step up as ULRs, to ensure sustainable Union Learning way into the future.

Aim High - To Discover & Develop.
