Nikki Simpson award for learning

This award recognises the transformational impact that union learning has both for our members, and the union as a whole.

Pamela Cosgrove, teacher and NEU vice-president, Northern Ireland wins Nikki Simpson award

Pamela said she was “delighted and humbled” to be recognised for the work she has done around training and development. 

She has promoted training opportunities, particularly those aimed at women members. She has introduced a mentoring scheme to support professional growth, organised media training for officers, and helped facilitate the Menopause in the Workplace course. She is working with reps to ensure every school has a menopause policy in place, which will be a focus next year, when Pamela becomes Northern Ireland NEU president.
