Regional Learning Fund Is Launched

2 Apr 2014

At the regional branch event held in Wakefield, Colin Kirkham, education officer and Tim Roache, regional secretary, launched the new ‘GMB Yorkshire & North Derbyshire Regional Learning Fund’ which came into operation on the 1st April 2014.

This fund has been created to assist GMB members with education and training costs in a bid to help them progress in their jobs but equally as important, it is there to help members who are out of work and who need to up-skill so they can secure future employment.  It is primarily aimed at members of the GMB who are on the unemployed rate.
