  • Are you interested in personal development and learning new skills?
  • Do you think that there could be more opportunity for staff learning and development in First Great Western?

Later this year we will co-ordinating a Lifelong Learning roadshow with regional events centred around a learning bus. The agenda will include discussions around Skills For Life, In House Development, Further Education and the Role of the ULR.

If you become a learning rep we will provide you with accredited training to ensure that you have the right knowledge and skills to fulfil the role. You will also be legally entitled to paid release time to carry out your duties and training.
