Unionlearn launched this project Building Trade Union Support for Workplace Learning throughout Europe in 2012. Its overall objective is to increase the capacity of trade unions at the European and national levels so that they are in a better position to:
- encourage, advise and guide workers in making informed choices as regards the take-up of education and training opportunities
- engage with employers, by collective bargaining or by social dialogue, in a process to improve workplace learning and to enhance workers’ skills.
One of the specific objectives of the project has been to make a EU-wide study of ways in which trade unions help workers to take up education and training opportunities, with an emphasis on existing examples of good practice in the form of case studies. A survey questionnaire was distributed to all 85 affiliated national organisations of the ETUC, and the responses from 19 different countries form the basis of this booklet.
