Motion 2 to TUC Congress 2002.
1 Congress welcomes the government’s investment in the Excellence in Cities scheme and the development of Learning Mentoring as an education based profession in schools.
2 Congress further believes that Learning Mentors make a substantial improvement in academic attainment levels and social behaviour and that their intervention should be recognised as making a professional commitment to the quality of education.
3 Congress is concerned at the lack of a coherent training and qualifications structure for this area of work and the lack of consistent national terms and conditions.
4 Congress therefore calls on the government and local government employers to adopt a system of national collective bargaining for this important area of work and a recognised qualifications system.
Doug Nicholls, General Secretary.
Bob Allen, President.
