Save Our Learndirect Centre

ALREADY RECEIVED OVER 230 SIGNATURES TO PAPER-BASED PETITION IN 5 DAYS!! We have received disappointing news from UfI (University for Industry) who operate Learndirect. They have decided to announce that our bid to tender for contract for the next two years has been rejected. The feedback received from UfI suggests that the reason is purely financial as a result of a reduction in central funds. It appears then they prefer to give the benefit of delivery to the larger training provider. The impact of this decision is that Best Training will cease to offer the high quality and opportunity of learning it has been able to give in the past and will have no other option but to close. It is currently lodging an appeal and we would like to count on your support for Best Training to remain open. The course of action is to raise this petition and gather as many signatures as possible; from family members, friends and neighbours and to display learner power to UfI who have always claimed, and quite rightly, that learner interests are first and foremost. Other courses of action would be to write letters to UfI, Regional Office, London; the local newspapers; to Councillors and MP
