Union learning reps
Our network of Union Learning Reps plays a key role in creating and sustaining a learning culture within the workplace working collaboratively with the branch/section.
For members interested in the learning agenda, Prospect offers a bespoke ULR training course which is supplemented with ad hoc development days. We currently have over 150 ULRs across a range of sectors.

We recommend that you get in touch with your local Unionlearn region to find out what's happening, current local issues and make contact with other union ULRs. Also to find out local Prospect ULRs in your region or workplace, please contact email@example.com
The toolkit is a collection of our key resources for ULRs:
Learning questionnaires are vital tools to help understand your colleagues' learning desires (both work and non-work). With approval from the branch and employer you should aim to carry out learning surveys at least once a year. Prospect provides a number of different versions:
There are various resources that can help you produce your own online survey such as Survey Monkey. They are usually simple to design, launch and analyse, although there may be some cost involved.
Prospect offers a online survey facility using a software tool called Snap. If you would like to take advantage of this facility or find out more about it, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Learning Agreements are negotiated with employers to demonstrate a commitment to working with unions to promote life long learning. They also serve as an opportunity for employers to recognise the ULR role and agree paid time off to carry out the associated duties.
Visit the unionlearn website for information about negotiating learning agreements.
If you would like help in setting up a learning agreement with your employer please contact email@example.com.
Prospect has five free self-study CD lending libraries available to members and their families.
Why not publicise the lending libraries to your members using one of the following posters:
