The AGM is the sovereign body of the EIS, and the decisions taken during the conference will set the priorities for the EIS in the year ahead. The event brings together teachers and lecturers from across Scotland, and is set to see a total of 75 Motions debated over the 3-day event, along with keynote speeches from outgoing EIS President Andrene Bamford (Thursday) and General Secretary Andrea Bradley (Friday).

This year’s programme includes 22 Motions on Education matters, 5 on Employment Relations matters, 14 on Equality matters, 22 on Organisation matters, and 12 on Salaries matters.

A key theme running throughout this year’s AGM will be the need for better support and increased investment in Scottish education, to better meet the needs of all learners and to deliver national commitments on education provision in all parts of the country.
