WRANX- Register for new tool/app which helps with your Maths and English
WRANX is tool/app which focuses on regular, bite-sized learning to help members gain knowledge, learn and develop in their workplace. You can register and complete the courses on offer via RMT Learning.
Courses on offer are:
• Functional skills English and Maths at both level 1and 2.
• GCSE revision English and Maths.
• Mental health awareness.
• Substance misuse awareness.
We are working with online learning experts Wranx to support members by providing eLearning Maths and English modules etc. – this is a pilot initiative. The content for each module has been designed to meet individual learning journeys.
The training tools puts learning in the palm of your hand and uses the simple scientific idea of spaced repetition to provide learning that improves knowledge retention, even with as little as 2-3 minutes of training a day.
The modules have been developed to reinforce and underpin members existing knowledge through a continuous learning experience of daily drills. Wranx makes learning easy and effective for everyone.
It is particularly recommended for RMT Learning members to achieve Maths and English level 2 qualifications. The new training tool is open to all members as well.
The first 100 learners have the opportunity to sign up and register for the English or maths or both drills at level 1 or 2. Depending on the level of interest, there will be an opportunity to provide more units in the future.
Fill out the secure online form to register your interest in using the tool.
Note; The TUC will record those signing up on their Trax learning recording system for learning purposes only, and the RMT will only be provided with the information of our members taking up this opportunity to inform our posiible future development of this new learning tool.
