Ken McKenzie Award for Lifelong Learning 2019

Ken McKenzie Award for Lifelong Learning 2019

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 Liverpool over two days on the 20th and 21st November 2019. 

Last year the accolade was awarded jointly to Wayne Callaghan (North Wales & Chester Combined) and Amy Jackson (North Staffordshire Postal) and as usual we received a good number of nominations of a very high quality.

I am now inviting applications for the 2019 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 via letter or email to my Department.

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

Michelle Simpson, Equality, Training & Development Department, CWU, 150 The Broadway, Wimbledon, London, SW19 1RX or email

The closing date for nominations will be FRIDAY 1ST NOVEMBER 2019. 

Any queries relating to this LTB should be addressed to me via the Equality, Training & Development Department at

Yours sincerely,


Lee Wakeman
Acting Head of Equality, Training & Development
