Circular No. ED/086/20

9th April 2020

To: All Branches, Regional Councils, Regional Organisers and Head Office Officers.

Dear Colleagues


In light of the current COVID-19 Pandemic RMT Learning has produced an online learning offer, covering a wide range of subjects and styles. From spaced repetition learning, to basic skills and beyond the courses available can be done at your own pace, in your own time to suit you.

They include English, Maths, IT, Health and Wellbeing, Bite sized training on Menopause in the Workplace, Health and Safety, to History, Criminal Psychology and creative writing and many more.

All the offers are accessible through online links embedded in the ‘The Learning Offer’ most are free and some offer nationally recognised qualifications.

Some providers are only able to offer learning on specific post code areas. But there will be providers in your area who can provide similar learning.

If you are unsure, speak to your local Union Learning Rep (by phone or online obviously), contact a Lead Learning Organiser covering your region or workplace. Or contact;

Francine Eyioko-Bakers at F.Enyioko-Bakers@rmt.org.uk or on 0207 5298820
Donna Murray at d.murray@rmt.org.uk or on 0207 5298820

I sincerely hope as many of our members as possible will take up these learning opportunities in these difficult times and hopefully they will assist you in the future after the current pandemic.

Yours sincerely

General Secretary
