What’s New? As part of our mid year review we have been updating all of the Learning Themes and introducing new sections and information where possible. Look out for even more changes over the next few weeks. We recently launched two new unionlearn

Learning Themes (see page 3 for more information about this). We have also refreshed the ‘Other Links’ area of the site. We are currently working to improve the reporting function of the Climbing Frame, and are looking to introduce some new functionality, such as

being able to upload documents onto the website for a ULR’s own use. We will have more details on this in the next issue of the Climbing Frame Newsletter, out in October. Coming Soon… A new unionlearn Learning Theme on Progression for Reps.

Health Sector Learning Themes Launch

The Health Sector Learning Themes were officially launched at the UNISON Health Conference which took place in Brighton on Tuesday the 24th of April 2012. A workshop was held entitled ‘Launching into Learning: Campaign to promote workplace learning’, which included speakers from NHS Employers, unionlearn

and UNISON Highland Healthcare. Louisa Smith from unionlearn gave a presentation about the Climbing Frame and introduced the new Learning Themes. She said: “I am delighted to be here to launch the new Learning Themes. It has been a fantastic project to work on and one which I hope will be of real value to ULRs in the

health sector. Many thanks to all those who have been involved”. All ULRs in the health sector can now access the 6 new Learning Themes. Climbing Frame users simply need to ensure that they have selected that they are in the ‘health’ sector, and they will then be able to access all the health Learning Themes along with the unionlearn ones.
