My name is Brian Hurst, I am the Project Support Organiser (PSO) responsible for overseeing, co-ordinating and offering education throughout Region 9.
Working alongside our learning centre staff, your Regional Education & Learning Organiser (RELO) Martin Harding and Brigade Education & Learning Officers (BELOs) we are on hand to offer you Information, Advice and Guidance to assist you in making the correct decisions in accessing new learning opportunities.
By entering into effective partnerships with Fire & Rescue Services (F&RS) and learning providers we are proud to be able to promote lifelong learning to FRS employees, friends and family.
Browse the new and extended list of courses we have available for the 2019-20 academic year and follow the links for each course for more information and to express an interest.
Furthermore, we are able to offer guidance on learning providers for access to a whole host of other courses and qualifications.
In Region 9 in 2019/20 we are actively recruiting Union Learning Reps (ULR's,) and Learning Champions for all workplaces to help with the advertising and distribution of learning opportunities and qualifications and welcome anyone interested in taking up such a role.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you require any assistance.
