Application Form

Please complete the application form below in full, including the declaration to validate your application.

The more information you provide in your application, the greater your chance of being successful.  

We welcome applications from all women members of the Labour Party.

The cost of the training varies depending on your LWN membership;
LWN members - £5 for one course, £7.50 for both
(if you are not currently a member and wish to apply as an LWN member you must have joined us before submitting your application).
Non-member - £10 for one course, £15 for both
Our Solidarity rate - £15 for one course, £30 for both (this adds an extra donation to help with our training and campaign work).

Fees are to be paid into our Unity Trust Account and must be paid no more than 5 days after receiving email confirmation that you have been successful.  If you have an issue about paying in time, please email Jane on jane@lwn.org.uk who will discuss this with you.

We normally expect participants to have at least one year’s membership of the Labour Party before doing these courses; this is because most people need a basic working knowledge of the Party in order to benefit from what we offer.  However, in exceptional circumstances, we do accept applicants with less than this.  If this applies to you, please tell us why we should accept you in your Personal Statement and we will consider you.

We expect these courses to be in high demand, and places are limited.
 
At the end of the application form you will see a diversity monitoring survey. It would be extremely helpful if you could complete this, so that we can continue to collect and publish anonymised diversity data about our trainees as well as take appropriate steps to ensure that our training is open and accessible to all our members and, where relevant, all women members of the Labour Party.

At the end of the application form, please press submit to send your application to us. We will not contact you until after the relevant deadline has passed (1 November or 22 November). Please bear with us as we need to read all the applications submitted to determine who has been successful. If you need to contact us urgently please email contact@lwn.org.uk
