Created on: 08 Feb 2016 | Last modified: 20 Jul 2022

All EIS representatives are volunteers and carry out a number of duties on behalf of the Educational Institute of Scotland and for their colleagues and fellow members.

These duties include:

  • Informing members - keeping fellow members up to date with the latest union news from the local, regional and national levels

  • Supporting and advising your fellow members as and when needed

  • Recruiting new members – this is the largest teachers union in Scotland, our strength lies in our numbers

  • Membership retention and information – keeping our records up to date with contact information and member info enables us to communicate more efficiently with our membership.
