The New Year has brought new opportunities in January 2017 to Region 4 with a healthy interest in our Distance Learning. We have had a good uptake of Courses in West Yorkshire and with the help and assistance of Gavin Marshall and his team we have new opportunities for our Humberside Learners and we are looking to actively recruit interested members in North and South Yorkshire
In all Brigades in Region 4 we are looking actively to bring new ULRs and Learning Champions on board to improve and sustain our position as the only Union with an accredited Learning Centre with support networks throughout the country. In the past Region 4 has proved a hotbed of learning opportunity and we hope to carry on the good work into 2017.
Our Twitter page is up and running so come and visit us and see what we are up to on a daily basis.
