The EIS develop policies aimed at advising and supporting members in all areas of education in all types of establishment.
We have developed policies covering the full range of educational and professional issues which impact on teachers in nursery, primary secondary and special schools.
We also responds to consultative documents on educational matters from the Scottish Government and other national bodies.
The EIS works closely with government and other governmental bodies on a range of education issues. In these discussions, all senior EIS representatives are informed by developed EIS policy on educational matters. A full list of policy documents is available online here.
We campaign for quality continuing professional development for all teachers and, in partnership with a number of university providers have responsibility for delivering a growing number of CPD opportunities.
Increasingly our policy development work includes information and advice which can be used as a resource for teachers. These include the following:
• Putting Teachers at the Heart of Health Promoting Schools
• Supporting Teachers, Tackling Indiscipline
• Inclusive Education
Print versions of these and other documents can be ordered direct from the EIS. (Subject to print availability).
