REMINDER AND FINAL CALL: Ken McKenzie Award for Lifelong Learning 2017

REMINDER AND FINAL CALL: Ken McKenzie Award for Lifelong Learning 2017

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to remind Branches that we are still seeking nominations for the Ken McKenzie Award for Lifelong Learning.

Branches will be aware of the policy adopted at General Conference 2010 to present the “Ken McKenzie Award for Lifelong Learning” which is presented to a Union Learning Representative (ULR) or group of ULRs who have made a significant contribution to lifelong learning within the CWU. The award is presented each year at our CWU ULR National Networking Event. This year will follow tradition and be part of the agenda at this year’s event scheduled to be held in Blackpool over two days on the 8th and 9th November 2017.

Last year the accolade was awarded jointly to Mel Cambridge (Scotland No. 1), Neil Crothall (Great Western) and Gavin Hardie (Plymouth & East Cornwall) and as usual we received a good number of nominations of a very high quality.

I am now inviting applications for the 2017 Annual Ken McKenzie award for lifelong learning. The award will be made in recognition of exceptional achievements and contributions to lifelong learning and training by a CWU ULR or a group of CWU ULRs. Nominations can be made by Branches, Regional Learning Committees or Regional Committees by completing the attached nomination form.

Completed nominations should include a detailed précis of the nominated ULR or group of ULRs endeavours and achievements and be sent to:

Michelle Simpson, Education and Training Department, CWU, 150 The Broadway, Wimbledon, London, SW19 1RX or email

The closing date for nominations will be MONday 9th October 2017.

Any queries relating to this LTB should be addressed to me via the Education and Training Department at


Yours sincerely,




Final reminder – Ken McKenzie Award for Lifelong Learning 2017
