Professor Bert Clough

Bert Clough, until his retirement, was Research and Strategy Manager of Unionlearn, the TUC's learning and skills organisation. He was responsible for commissioning research work on the role of unions in learning and skills from leading universities. He was also responsible for developing Unionlearn's overall strategy and was its main architect, drafting the submission that was accepted by the then DfES in 2006. Bert also helped to develop the concept of the "union learning representative" and played a major part in securing statutory recognition for such representatives. 

Bert will contribute to CERIC research and impact activities, doctoral engagement and general external facing activities.
