Region 10



Welcome to the London Region Education and Learning pages. 

I am Graeme Lester and I have been appointed as the Project Support Organiser for the London Region. During the last 2 years I have been supporting the delivery of the Personal Trainer Level 3 Apprenticeship, our Distance Learning packages and recently the innovative Heat Illness Prevention Awareness programme. I am now looking forward to progressing our course delivery during 2019/2020.

I am very pleased to be able to report that for the new academic year we will be delivering the following courses all at Level 2 (equivalent to a pass at GCSE)

  • Team Leading
  • Nutrition and Health
  • Common Health Conditions
  • Information, Advice and Guidance
  • Mental Health Awareness
  • Equality and Diversity
  • Information Technology (ECDL)
  • Dementia Care
  • End of Life Care
  • Understanding Autism
  • English & Maths
  • Online British Sign Language

These courses not only enable members to improve their knowledge and skills but to also gain a valuable Nationally recognised qualification.

The FBU National Learning Centre has gradually developed its ability to deliver accredited courses during the last few years. My role is to help to promote these courses and encourage participation of our members. We will always strive to provide not only qualifications linked to the role of Fire Service Personnel but also courses that are interesting and wherever possible fully funded. 


Union Learning Reps

As always we work alongside your employer and other agencies to help the delivery of our courses and to help this process we are always looking for our members to become more involved and become Learning Reps. For more information on this role please visit  and/or


In recent years the FBU have been commended for their work regarding Dyslexia and we now have available an online screening tool which can act as a huge support for some of our members who have a learning disability and more information can be found here  We now have in excess of 150 trained reps across the UK who can provide advice and guidance on this subject.

Our Learning Centre Staff and Project Support Organisers can also provide Information, Advice & Guidance to help you make the right decision on accessing new learning opportunities. If you are not sure about your first step back into learning or need help making the right decision about your next course or qualification then we can help you; we can also provide information that will help guide you to the right learning provider.  Just contact our National Learning Centre Staff or your local Project Support Organiser and we can arrange a face to face meeting or discuss via telephone.
