The EIS launched a new campaign, Stand up for Quality Education, during this year’s AGM.
The aim of the campaign is to significantly improve teachers’ working conditions, and health, safety and wellbeing at work and by so doing, the quality of learning experiences for learners.
Focussing on 3 key priority areas the campaign will call for:
- Build the skills, resources and school culture to address distressed, violent and aggressive pupil behaviour
- An increase in funding and support for pupils with additional support needs
- A significant reduction in teacher workload
Resources are currently being sent out to schools and more information on the campaign will be available via www.eis.org.uk
