We believe that access to learning is a fundamental human right. Education builds confidence and self-esteem, and gives people dignity. It’s also key to succeeding in our changing working world, where flexible skill development is becoming vital. We think it’s so important that we created our own dedicated workplace-training organisation: Communitas.

Communitas is a one-of-a-kind in the union world, and an integral part of Community. We constantly strive to make sure that we provide our members (and their families) with the best education, training and learning opportunities.



In 2012 we opened our new Education & Training Centre at The Grange in Earls Barton. The Grange is a modern facility within an historic building – an ideal place for the education and training our members.

If you have a skill gap, or need help to make that career move, you will find all of the contact information for our expert Learning Officers within the Communitas pages found on the site.

Communitas is a fully owned subsidiary of Community. We work with Community members, individuals, employers and key stakeholders to create and deliver learning solutions, in line with Community’s values of being ‘A modern union, for a changing world’.
