Labour Women's Network provides subsidised training opportunities for our members, which are also open to non-members.

Our training enjoys a very high reputation, and we always aim to run the best possible events for participants. We run sessions at Labour conferences and events and support women to play an active part in the life of the Party, particularly through our gold standard residential training.

We make every effort to ensure that a diverse range of women is able to participate in our training, and we monitor and publish our diversity figures, which you can see here.

#lwntrainingworks - Of the record breaking 53% of Labour candidates who are women, 20% are graduates or alumnae of Labour Women’s Network. See our #GE2019 sisters in action

LWN Leadership Weekends

In 2018/19 we will be running three new Leadership Schools around the country. These are designed for women who want to develop their political activities at all levels in the Party, from organising and leading campaigning to becoming candidates for devolved bodies or the Westminster Parliament.

They are designed for women who are in or thinking of taking leadership roles at any level in the Party, from branch officer to parliamentary candidate and everything in between. The course is very intensive with a high trainer/trainee ratio and plenty of time to think about yourself and your future. You will acquire new skills, learn how to build your profile and play to your strengths and meet some great Labour women.

We currently have two future Leadership Weekend Schools planned, as follows:

LWN Autumn Leadership School, Watford 16th & 17th November 2019 (application deadline is 29th Sept 2019),

LWN Winter Leadership School, Wortley Hall, nr Sheffield, 18th & 19th Jan 2020 (application deadline is 6th Dec 2019)

LWN Spring Leadership School, Stoke Rochford Hall, nr Grantham, 4th & 5th April 2020 (application deadline 21st Feb 2020)

      Previous weekend schools have been held in Sheffield, Durham and Swindon
