This Co-op Fortnight (taking place from the 21 June to the 4 July) we're calling on everyone across the co-operative movement and beyond to celebrate the power of co-operative education and join us in highlighting a key part of our principles.

As we build back better from the Covid-19 pandemic, research has shown that education is going to be right at the heart of recovery. According the the World Economic Forum's Future of Jobs Report, 50% of all employees will need reskilling by 2025. That's a lot of training to get through!

Not only that, education is central to the co-operative movement and part of the principles that make co-operatives unique. You might have heard of employee ownership, social enterprises and B-Corps, but it's fair to say that co-ops were the originals.

To spread awareness of these values and principles even further, we're giving away a limited number of our full Co-operative Values and Principles Online Anytime course (worth over £40!) perfect if you'd like to find out more about co-ops and why people power, not just profit, should be the way to do business.

There are just 50 courses up for grabs, so once they're gone, they're gone! To grab your free course, simply complete the form below and you'll be redirected to the course page. Once there, simply enter the discount code fortnightfreebie to reduce the price to zero
