EIS Equality Reps must undertake training which is carried out by the TUC. 

The module covers the equality agenda broadly as it applies to teachers and how Equality Reps fit within EIS structures.

The course is carried out over four separate days and on completion the Equality Rep will have an SCQF Level 6 qualification.

A Stage 1 course is currently underway, with a Stage 2 course scheduled to follow, later this year.


Local Associations who do not currently have an Equality Rep in post or in training are particularly encouraged to identify a member to take part in the next round of training (dates to be confirmed).

If you would like any further information on becoming an Equality Rep, please contact Natalie Carroll.
