FEU Closes Live Training Programme But Digital Access to Training Continues

After more than a decade, the Federation of Entertainment Unions (FEU) has closed its live training programme – following the Government’s decision to pull all unionlearn funding. However, their digital learning online centre will remain online.

You may be aware that the Government recently decided to pull funding for all unionlearn skills development programmes including FEU Training.

Despite the high performance and proven impact of the union learning programme (over 250,000 members have participated to gain the essential skills they need for continued career development), the lengthy campaign to reverse this decision was unsuccessful. However, the FEU (of which the MU is a member) will continue to look for new funding sources in the future.

While FEU Training can no longer offer you live online and face-to-face training and support, members in England will still have free access to the digital learning centre, which contains a variety of learning opportunities including learning modules, tutorials, recorded webinars and e-courses such as:
