POA Learning have been successful in being granted funding by Welsh Government via the Welsh Union Learning Fund (WULF).
The Skills Accelerator Wales project will run from 1st April 2019 until 31st March 2022 subject to the annual approval of funding.
Skills Accelerator Wales will seek to develop and deliver learning opportunities along the lines of those that POA members in England have been able to access over recent years.
We will look to build a partnership approach with HMPPS management at strategic level and will seek to develop that partnerships to bring about the creation of link learning centres at the HMPS prison sites in Wales;
The project will be looking for individuals who have an interest in learning and development and who are prepared to act as champions of learning in the workplace to volunteer for the role of union learning representatives We will support them to undertake the appropriate training to equip them for their role and additionally to support their ongoing development.
We will work closely with each of the POA branches and local officials to ensure that ownership of the project and the learning opportunities it develops and delivers are responsive to the interests and aspirations of members at grass roots level.
If you would like more information or advice then please start by contacting your local branch officials.
