Learning Event as part of UnionLearn

THERE will be something for everyone at a learning event organised by trade unions in Dorchester.

Unionlearn, the education arm of the TUC (Trades Union Congress), and Dorset County Council’s Unison branch have organised a Learning at Work Day at the Corn Exchange on Thursday.

The event runs from 11am to 2pm and offers training sessions covering areas such as digital photography, cycle safety, basic first aid and healthy cooking.

There will also be a chance to pick up some green skills from recycling and solar panel experts and crafty learning such as wicker weaving and cake decorating.

Keith Hatch from unionlearn said: “Unionlearn is really pleased to be working with the Dorset County Council Branch of UNISON to put all these sessions, activities and tasters on and we’d encourage everyone to pop into the Corn Exchange and try their hand at something new.

“The event is free and open to everyone, it doesn’t matter where you work across Dorchester, or if you don’t for that matter, just drop by and have a go.”
