Upgrade to probationer membership




Did you finish University and start your probation year in August? If so then you need to upgrade your membership with the EIS.

If you don't upgrade then you will no longer be an EIS member during your probation so it's important you get that done as soon as possible, you can do it online right now by clicking
here



What is the difference between EIS Student and EIS full member?

Well as a probationer member it will still be free until January 2015 but you will get voting rights so you will be able to take part in EIS local & national elections, ballots and generally have a vote in how the EIS is run. You will also be entitled to legal advice and representation at both local level and with GTCS procedures.

Why do you need my bank details if it is still free?

We will write to you near the end of 2014 to remind you we will soon be taking a payment from your account, at the moment membership starts from £10.32 a month. We require your bank details so we can upgrade your membership to a full membership and you will receive financial benefits from a full membership.

What benefits do I get?

As well as representation, you have a say in how the EIS work, how the EIS try to improve your working day and you will be covered by our insurance policy. This covers you for personal property or malicious damage to your car while at the school. As part of your welcome pack you will receive a free USB memory stick, an EIS lanyard and your new EIS membership card.
