Stand Up With us for Quality Education

Welcome to SEJ Digital

Editor’s Comment

The EIS Annual General Meeting is one of the key events in the educational calendar. As the sovereign decision-making body of the Institute, the AGM shapes the policy and priorities for the EIS in the year ahead.

This year’s AGM, held at the Caird Hall in Dundee in the first week of June, featured a packed agenda which included 70 motions for debate, keynote speeches from the President and General Secretary, a fringe programme and invited guest speakers, plus the publication of an independent research report on teacher workload and the launch of the EIS manifesto ahead of the UK General Election.

In this special edition of the SEJ, we look back at the key events from the AGM.

This SEJ provides a flavour of the speeches and debates at AGM. Further details on all motions passed at the AGM is available via www.eis.org.uk
