Workplace Learning Advocates Initiative
Upskill your workforce for free
This initiative has been operated by The Johnston Partnership in Cumbria/North West region since 2004. It is now also being delivered in the North East region & is soon to be piloted in Yorks & Humberside.
The initiative is now part of a national scheme in partnership with a London based organisation called Workbase who are delivering in the Midlands/Southern regions. Have a look at our national website for more information - www.wlas.org.uk

The training is fully funded for non-unionised companies. Disability support and interpretation is available from us as required.
