The Trade Union Research Unit (TURU) was established at Glasgow Caledonian University in 1978 and since then we have undertaken a wide range of research and consultancy work at local, regional, national, and international level.
We are able to draw on a wide range of specialists within the unit, the Glasgow School for Business and Society and the wider university to undertake research and consultancy for the trade union and labour movement.
Working in partnership with the Scottish Centre for Work Based Learning, we can design courses which reflect your learning needs. Where a number of employees or members from the same organisation or union are interested in Work Based Learning, we can construct a themed approach to ensure a common programme for a group of learners.
Work Based Learning is highly flexible, and can be adapted to allow you to follow the most effective course of study for you. If you can demonstrate that you have gone beyond working to learning through work, it offers you the chance of higher level education and qualifications, without giving up your job. Other benefits include:
