It is the education officer’s responsibility to make sure all new stewards and safety representatives receive initial information and guidance about their duties, e.g. stewards’ handbook, rulebook, service conditions agreements, etc.
The lifelong learning officer ensures that learning is high on the branch’s agenda and linked into its organising, bargaining and equalities work. They work closely with the education officer (the same person may take on both roles) co-ordinating the activity of learning representatives in the branch education team.
