Introducing new remote learning opportunities

UNISON is keen to ensure that members still have access to the high-quality training that the union provides, even though it’s not possible to meet face-to-face during the current coronavirus crisis. That’s why the union has formed a partnership with the Skills Academy to give members access to over 550 free online courses, from time priority management to how to manage virtual teams to remote workers’ security. In this time of heightened anxiety and stress, it’s more important than ever to take care of ourselves and our own wellbeing, so the union has also produced an online version of our popular Staying Strong stress awareness course. UNISON’s friends at the TUC, the Open University and Digital Unite also have plenty of free courses online. You can find those, together with all UNISON’s online learning opportunities here. The article Introducing new remote learning opportunities first appeared on the UNISON National site.

Reducing stress and regaining your footi...

It’s now been nearly three months of lockdown in the UK and we are still living through the most extraordinary times. Though as restrictions are being relaxed, at different rates in the four nations of the UK, the sense of confusion is growing and not easing. The government’s own scientific advisors claim that decisions are being made for political and not scientific reasons; people who were meant to be shielding are now allowed to go out and some schools in England opened this week, with some year groups returning to lessons, but some parents keeping their children at home. Confusion reigns. And with it anxiet...
