The TUC and education unions are actively campaigning against specific aspects of the government’s education policy. A key campaigning priority is to raise awareness of the detrimental impact of the expansion of “for profit” education providers and the danger of greater privatisation in all parts of the education sector. This campaign was officially launched in March 2014 with the publication of a detailed research report and a campaign pamphlet and the TUC has now established a dedicated Education not for Sale website to support campaigning activities.
The TUC works closely with the affiliated education unions on policy and workforce issues across all parts of education, including early years provision, schools, colleges, universities and work-based learning routes. Please note that the unionlearn website contains a lot more information on learning at work and the union role in support of this. Other parts of the TUC website also cover skills policy and issues relating to learning and training at work.
