CWU Youth Education Event 2010

The 2010 National Youth Education Event is planned to take place over the weekend of 15-17 October, and will take place at the Jury's Inn Hotel in Newcastle.

This is the primary youth event run by the CWU. It brings together young (under the age of 30) activists over the course of a weekend in which they gain knowledge, skills and confidence about their role in the union and the union's work in general.

The event will start at 6pm on Friday 15 October and will end at lunchtime on Sunday 17 October. A timetable will be issued nearer the time.

The value of the National Youth Education Event can be seen by the way in which past participants have increased in confidence and skills and have made increasingly valuable and high level contributions to the union. Indeed, past participants now find themselves as Branch Youth Officers, Regional Youth Committee Chairs, workplace or area representatives, National Officers of the union, or chairing European-wide trade union meetings through our international organisation UNI.
