The RED Learning Co-operative brings together practitioners and activists with many years of experience of working with Trade Unions, Non-Governmental Organisations, Social Enterprises, Charities, Community groups and the Co-operative Movement. We have a passion for working collaboratively to develop critically reflective, radical and emancipatory education for personal and collective agency and empowerment.

Radical simply means ‘grasping things at the root’ (Angela Davis)

We formed as a co-operative in 2018, emerging from the tradition of radical trade union education and critical pedagogy. This tradition takes as its starting point, that critical and engaged study is an integral part of how the labour movement and other allied social movements, can face the challenges of the current political landscape, as well as grasp the opportunities that are emerging.
