Lifelong Learning – CWU Learning Centre Guidance (Covid-19)
The purpose of this LTB is to provide Branches with guidance on local delivery of CWU arranged lifelong learning courses and workshops as we approach the lifting of restrictions within each of the devolved nations and crown dependencies.
The overriding principle must be that where there are government or administrative guidelines in place these must be adhered to at all times.
Given the continued rise in the number of Covid19 infections being reported it is clear that where CWUarranged “lifelong learning” for members’ is planned within learning centres or appropriate training rooms, it is essential that everyone needs to remain vigilant and proceed with caution.
The CWU Health, Safety & Environment Dept. has secured positions whereby employers should be operating safely policed by our Safety Reps.
It is essential that these approaches are adhered to within learning centres on employers’ premises. In addition, it is equally essential that appropriate risk assessments must also be carried out in CWU premises prior to any courses taking place.
To this end, whether within employers or Branch premises, we are content that learning centres can begin to be utilised for lifelong learning courses and workshops on specific government advised dates. This is on the
understanding that whatever precautions are in place, particularly those of the employer on employer premises, must be adhered to at all times.
Please note that this LTB does not supersede LTB 260/21 referring to the Core Activist / Representative programme due to be delivered online for the duration of this calendar year.
Your assistance and patience with these developments are very much appreciated.
Please forward any enquiries relating to this LTB to firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
