UNISON education

As the flexible learning arm of Unison, Britain’s biggest trade union, Unison Education’s role is to promote and encourage the personal and career development of our members.

Unison Open College is for your career and for your future. The Open College believes that:

  • Learning should be a lifelong activity for everyone
  • People should be able to develop their full potential at home and at work and in their communities
  • Barriers to accessing education and training should be removed wherever possible

Unison Open College has been established to do what it can to make these beliefs a reality for members.

Unison Open College is a fully accredited distance learning college, which means all our course materials, tuition and student advice services are independently assessed by the Open and Distance Learning Quality Council to ensure they meet the highest standards of educational provision.

We are also members of NIACE the National Organisation for Adult Learning and EADL, the European Association for Distance Learning.

There are also various grants available including bursaries, Open University BA and BSc Awards and Book Grants. See Branch for application forms.

If you’re an activist, the learning and organising services will inform you about the comprehensive training provision available to you in your region and nationally.

If you’re new to Unison, an established member or just interested, to discover the range of courses offered for personal and career development check out the Unison Open College website.
