The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) was given the award from the Union Learning Fund, established by the government in 1998, for a two-year project starting in April 2009.

Dr Peter Carter, RCN chief executive and general secretary, said: ‘I am delighted that the work the RCN has done with unionlearn in delivering projects over the last 10 years can continue, and that we have been able to secure this further funding of £300,000.

‘This funding is a vote of confidence in our activities to ensure that members in every workplace have access to the best learning and development opportunities available.

‘The new project focuses on delivering new opportunities to learning representatives on the ground, such as working in partnership with employers, which will undoubtedly benefit nursing staff across healthcare. I am very pleased that we will be continuing to work in partnership with unionlearn and look forward to strengthening this relationship in the future.’
