Updated Sector Booklets

A couple of years ago GMB Reach Out in conjunction with Tribal developed a range of courses for the retail and care sectors. These Vocationally Related Qualifications (VRQs) were bundled together in handy booklets to distribute to relevant workplaces.

They have proved so popular that we have almost run out of both versions.  So, in an effort to make sure they can continue to reach as many people as possible, we’ve made them available electronically so that they can be viewed online, downloaded or printed.

North West & Irish Regional Secretary Paul McCarthy said “It’s fantastic that the sector specific booklets, pioneered in this Region, have proved so popular and to see that they are being used in other Regions now too,”

We are in the process of developing a similar booklet for the schools sector and we hope to have some printed copies of all three booklets available soon.

In the meantime you can view the current editions electronically below, and if there is a course you would like to discuss in more detail please do not hesitate to contact a member of the team on 0161 877 9439 or via email at info@gmbreachout.org.uk
