Donít forget you can join in the activities for this yearís Learning At Work Day:

MAN35 canteen

Your UNITE Learning Reps have put a lot of effort into organising this event to help you get access to information about training and development. As well as the reps, participants include Fujitsu People Development and various training providers.
World Book Day
The last major learning event on campus was World Book Day, on Thursday 5th March. Thanks to everyone who joined in and made it such a success, improving again on last yearís event.
The day began with the UNITE Learning Reps setting up and promoting of the new workplace library in the MAN34 restaurant, which included a wide range of books from fiction to specialist subjects. All the Learning Reps were on hand to promote the library to all employees, to encourage them to take books away to read as well as encouraging them to donate books of their own to increase the collection.
In the afternoon, two certificate presentations were held to recognise the learning achievements of many employees. The presentations were hosted by the Learning Reps, Tony Saunders from UnionLearn and were addressed by managers who said how well the partnership in learning was working.
Feedback from staff and managers was extremely positive.
