Nominations Open for Learner of the Year Award 2017

2017 Learner of the Year, Lauren McDonald, with Jamie Hepburn MSPScottish Union Learning has opened the nominations for the 2017 Learner of the Year Award, the deadline for nomination is 22nd September 2017.

This Award is presented at the Scottish Union Learning Conference each year, allowing Scottish Union Learning and the nominating union to recognise and celebrate the achievements of trade union learners across Scotland.

All unions are encouraged to submit at least one nomination in recognition of the success of their learners and the role the union has played in their learning journey. A case study providing information on the learner and the support provided by the union will be used in future SUL publications and will feature on the website.

Scottish Union Learning will present this award to a trade unionist who represents the most positive aspects of being a learner. The learner will be recognised on a basis of representing the thousands of union learners throughout Scotland. Nominations on behalf of a group of learners will only be considered where it can be clearly demonstrated that the collective experience was the most significant factor of the group’s learning journey. The award will be presented at the Scottish Union Learning Conference, which will take place in November 2017 in Edinburgh.

To apply, please fill out the nomination form that is available in the Related Resources section of this page. For more information on nominations, please contact a member of the Scottish Union Learning team.
