UNITE NATIONAL POLITICAL SCHOOL: DURHAM 2015
This year’s Durham National Political School is upon us once again Places are limited to 100 and will be shared across the regions and countries; with priority given to those applicants who best meet the criteria.
This year’s event will have a strong emphasis on building for the future; we would particularly appreciate applications from members who are under 30 years of age. This is in addition to all other equality strands including gender but also BAEM members who are almost always under-represented. Finally, we are encouraging Unite Community members to apply as well as applications from people who are already activists, whether in their workplace or in their community/other organisations as well as from those whom you believe have the potential to become activists.
With these criteria in mind we would ask you to send the attached application form to members and activists whom you feel would not only develop personally but more importantly who would also be willing to give a commitment to get more involved in delivering our political strategy in the 12 months following the course. The closing date for applications to be received in our office is Tuesday Noon 9th June 2015 following which we will write to all applicants no later than 11thJune 2015 to let them know whether or not they are successful.
We are hoping for a productive and positive event. There is no specific need for applicants to be in the Labour Party, we nonetheless will be looking for activists who support Unite’s political strategy (which of course includes ‘building broad alliances’ to defeat the Tories) and understand that our National Political School will not be a forum for trying to oppose or change our policy in respect of support for Labour.
