Working with Trades Unions on Skills for Life
Working with a Trades Union on this agenda can be very helpful. All trades unions train Union Learning Reps (ULRs) who could be champions of this agenda.
Individual unions also fund learning, click here to see an example.
The HEE National Talent For Care team are delighted to announce they have funded a licence for UK ENIC to support the NHS and Apprenticeship Leads.
UK ENIC is the designated national agency for the recognition and comparison of international qualifications and skills. This process and the cost attached have long been cited as a barrier for widening participation in apprenticeships and also traditional nursing and AHP degree programmes. The licence includes (virtual) training provision to help colleagues get up to speed with using the UK ENIC databases and confidently accessing overseas awards. It will allow you to compare overseas qualifications to the UK education framework as well as provide grading information and a focus on the common English and Maths equivalents.
For further details please contact your relationship manager.
