Free distance learning courses from UNISON

UNISON has linked up with Leicester College to provide places on fully funded courses. The courses are all distance learning so you do not have to attend a college to complete the course. You can do the assignments either online or in paper format (depending on the course), with a tutor on hand throughout to provide support. These courses are intended to support your own personal development and do not replace the mandatory training required for you to carry out your duties at work. You will also need to complete these courses in your own time.You will receive a nationally recognised Level 2 qualification upon completion of the course.
