Learning Rep Course 2017/18

CPD Learning Reps logoEIS Learning Reps have been instrumental in raising awareness of recent important professional learning developments, and in supporting teachers and lecturers through these developments. 

With the introduction of Professional Update it has never been more important to have a highly trained network of Learning Reps giving practical assistance to colleagues on all aspects of their Professional Learning, PRD and Professional Update.

The course includes a six week online introductory section through Glasgow City College which clarifies the role of Learning Reps, how they are involved in the EIS agenda and identifying barriers and challenges to undertaking CPD.  

Anyone wishing to undertake the course must be approved either by their Local Association if they work in a school or by their Branch if they are college based.

The second section of the course is at postgraduate level, is also delivered online through the University of West of Scotland, and takes three months to complete. 

Learning Reps have also been working in partnership with local authorities to hold joint events on many topics including Professional Update and Health and Wellbeing.

Do you want to be one of those Learning Reps? For further information on EIS Learning Reps, their role and how to apply for the course please email Leigh Meechan lmeechan@eis.org.uk or telephone 0131 225 6244. 

Places on the course are limited so you need to apply as soon as possible.

The deadline for receipt of all paperwork for the course, including the signed Confirmation of Approval from either your Local Association or College Branch (depending in which sector you work) must be received by Monday 9th January 2017.
