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.
