Learn and develop with Prospect's Organising & Leadership Academy (POLA)

There are two distinct aspects to our education, learning and skills work: training our reps and ensuring they have the skills they need to be effective, and promoting members' personal and career development.

POLA's education service runs the union's education programme, arranges funding for branch, section or regional training, and co-ordinates TUC Education and GFTU training for members. Our next few courses are shown below; for further courses, please see the full programme. Our Skills and Lifelong Learning team supports and promotes learning and career development in your workplace rafting and delivering learning agreements.
