thought I would bump this up as the society are in the process of setting up networks in the south west & the midlands. It will mean that england & scotland will have full coverage by ULR's. The society are still trying to get funding to proceed in Wales & N.Ireland. The ULR will become a very important figure with the advent of the KSF & HPC reg requirements.
The Union Learning Rep (ULR) is not there to control anything. The role of the ULR is funded by the Union Learning fund, a governement led inititive to facilitate life long learning, key skills & the professional development needs of union members, such as society members, which is of benefit to them & their practice.
The ULR role is active amongst many Trade Union Congress associates such as National Union of Teachers, National Association of School master & Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT), Unison & the Royal College of Nursing.
The Union Learning rep is also there to provide advice to members with relation to how the Knowledge & skills framework is used & how it is going to alter their working practice. The ULR will also provide advice & guidance on HPC regulation & how to complete the portfolio if audited by the HPC.
