The UCU CPD for All project needs to establish benchmarks around engagement with professional development issues at branch level.
The project is aiming to increase members’ take-up of UCU’s CPD programme as an end in itself, but also as a means of developing activism and building the union. Therefore, in order to measure the project’s impact we initially need to know how professional development issues are dealt with locally; by whom; and within which bargaining frameworks. Nil returns are welcome.
We are therefore asking branches to
- Complete a very short survey regarding how professional development issues are addressed locally, including identifying the presence of Union Learning Reps and/or a Learning Committee. Please complete the survey on behalf of your branch at https://yoursay.ucu.org.uk/s3/CPD-survey
- Send any copies of Learning Agreements and CPD policies to firstname.lastname@example.org .
