About Community Learn

Community believes that access to learning is a fundamental human right. Education builds confidence and self-esteem and gives people dignity. It’s also a key to succeeding in our ever-changing working world, where flexible skill development is vital. That’s why we have our in-house Community Learn team based around the UK, dedicated to supporting our members access learning, training and education.

Learning is at the heart of everything we do…

Community has an in-house team of Learning Organisers, dedicated to working with members and employers to increase access to learning and training opportunities. Since establishing our learning and skills services, we have facilitated over 54,000 learning opportunities for Community members and other learners, and secured over £15.8 million of Government and European funding, to give members, their families and their local communities access to the best education, training and learning opportunities.

The Community Learn team helps to identify and train Union Learning Reps in Community’s workplaces. Click here to find out more about being a Union Learning Rep.

We aim to transform the lives of Community members through learning.
