"I became a Union Learning Representative because I am passionate about enabling people to learn and develop existing or new skills. Before this I was a volunteer mentor to young people not in education employment or training for MentorPoint Lancashire. I get a great deal of satisfaction from helping other people to improve their skills and abilities. I enjoy seeing someone else do something they thought they couldn't do because they have been supported by someone who believed that they could do it.
"I'm still new to the ULR role and enjoying lots of challenges coming my way. I'm also pleased with the range of opportunities that are available for me through UnionLearn and the Unison branch to enable me to learn more. Being a ULR is not just about helping others to achieve - it's about you developing as well. The role has opened doors for me that I didn't know were there to be opened. I wasn't sure I wanted to be a ULR - but I'm glad I am now!"
