Circular No. NP/300/16
Dear Colleagues


Please nominate by Monday 16 January

Members who have previously applied to attend,
but whose applications were not successful, are invited to re-apply

The next school will take place from Sunday 19 March to Friday 24 March 2017 at the National Education Centre at Doncaster. Participants will be expected to arrive by the early evening of 19 March to meet fellow students at an evening buffet and to ensure a prompt start on the Monday.

With the assistance of guest speakers and our parliamentary group the purpose of the school is for participants to be equipped with a sound understanding of the political role of trade unions, the RMT’s political activity, our international work and how Branches and Regions can effectively support RMT national campaigns and develop local campaigning initiatives.

Branches are invited to nominate one representative but in doing so please ensure that your nominee will definitely be able to attend the school. In the event of applications exceeding places available, the Council of Executives will determine the successful applicants.

Branches are actively encouraged to nominate for the school including, applications from women members. All applications from Branches will be placed before the NEC for consideration.

Please complete the attached form to nominate a representative and return to Head Office no later than Monday 16 January 2017.

Yours sincerely


Mick Cash
General Secretary
