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 and Learning Organiser (RELO) Martin Harding and Brigade Union Learning Reps (ULRs) 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.
The following distance courses are now available for this academic year Sept 16 to July 17, all are fully accredited nationally recognised qualifications at Level 2 (GCSE equivalent).
Follow the links on the home page for further information on each course and expression of interest form.
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 2016/17 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.
