Woman teaching

Welcome to the EIS Probationer Teachers section of our website.

It is designed specifically for probationary teachers to give you some tips and advice to help you in your probation year, and some information about how the EIS can support you. We hope you will join the largest Education Trade Union in Scotland.

EIS membership is free for all probationers during their probationary year until the end of December 2021 with the opportunity to secure a further discounted period.

For more information on how to secure the discounted membership period please visit the Upgrade Your Membership section of the website.

During both the free period and the discounted period, you will be entitled to the full range of EIS services such as representation, legal advice, professional learning opportunities and an EIS Extra Discount Card.

As a probationer teacher, we hope you will become involved in the work of the School Branch and your EIS Local Association - whether by supporting campaigns, attending training events and meetings, joining networks, or even joining the Local EIS Committee of Management.

Unions are strongest when members are engaged, and we hope you'll become an active participant during your probation year or once you are an established teacher.

Remember, we’re here to help if you need us.
