CWU Union Learning Representatives Networking Event 2019
This year’s networking event will take place on the 20th & 21st November 2019 at:

This event will ensure that our ULRs can discharge their legally recognised responsibilities to great effect through networking with other educationalists.
Over the two days, delegates will explore new and innovative ideas on learning and enhance their skills so that they can facilitate both new and ongoing learning opportunities in their workplaces.

There will be opportunities:
· To meet with other CWU Union Learning Representatives

Further detail – please read
Branches are asked to book a ULR delegate place by email in the first instance to firstname.lastname@example.org with contact details including name, Branch, contact number and an email or postal address to which an application form can be sent.
Alternatively, Branches can contact Michelle Simpson (as listed below).
The form will be sent out to the individual ULR and this will need to be countersigned by the Branch Secretary. Delegates who have specific dietary needs or allergies must advise us of any requirements on the form.
To guarantee that your Branch is represented you must return your completed and signed application form to the Education & Training Department at HQ by Friday 1st November 2019.
You can book accommodation at The Liner Hotel for a cost of £67.50 per person per night. This cost also applies if you wish to stay more than one night (apart from weekends).
Please advise The Liner Hotel that you are attending the CWU ULR Networking Event using the code 1911COMMUN. Accommodation at The Liner will be on a first come-first served basis and you can book into other accommodation in Liverpool if you wish. A list of nearby hotels is attached which cover a range of prices. Please note that the hotels listed have not been vetted by the CWU so we cannot make any recommendations.
Unfortunately, due to registration and accommodation not being linked, we will not be able to arrange substitutions for delegates. The Branch will need to contact both the Equality, Training & Development Dept. and the hotel directly to either notify of cancellation or replacement by another ULR from within the Branch.
This event is being supported by the CWU and the Union Learning Fund (England).
This event should attract paid release for those accredited ULRs working for employers where the CWU is recognised.
