ULR Networking Event 2020: Applications Now Open!

This year’s networking event will take place on the 3rd – 4th November 2020.
Due to the ongoing Covid 19 situation this year’s event will be held over Zoom.

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.

This year’s theme is “New Challenges” and will focus heavily on keeping learning open to members through the pandemic and beyond. There will be opportunities:

  • To meet with other CWU Union Learning Representatives
  • To attend virtual workshops & stalls
  • To hear from high profile guest speakers
  • To learn about the latest CWU learning developments
  • And to celebrate your achievements!


Branches are asked to book ULR delegate places by email to learn@cwu.org with contact details including name, Branch, contact number and email. We will send out Zoom links in the run up to the event. In order to allocate delegates to workshops the deadline for applications is Thursday 29th October 2020.

Since there will be no travel or subsistence expenses we are hoping this will encourage branches to increase their delegations this year. All ULRs and any branch officers or reps with an interest in education are invited to attend.

This event is being supported by the CWU and the Union Learning Fund.


This event should attract paid release for those accredited ULRs working for employers where the CWU is recognised. The event is specifically designed to meet the aims of ULR legislation and is fully supported through the Government Department for Business Innovation and Skills. The ACAS Code of Practice applies.
