The Educational Institute of Scotland is the longest established teachers’ union in the world.
Here are 10 reasons why the EIS should be your union:
The EIS campaigns actively to secure and maintain professional salaries and improve conditions of services for all its members (the EIS has the overwhelming majority of members on the Scottish Negotiating Committee for Teachers – SNCT).
As a professional organisation the EIS is committed to promoting opportunities for quality professional development for ALL teachers throughout their careers. The EIS is the only Scottish teaching union with Learning Representatives to support members’ CPD.
The EIS provides the best legal and professional advice bar none. Our solicitors and our network of EIS Representatives, Local Association Secretaries and Area Officers are available to provide the highest quality support and advice when it is needed.
A commitment to quality and equality across our education service is a hallmark of the EIS and its work in developing policies covering: Education, The Equality Agenda, Pay and Conditions of Service and all other areas of trade union work.
The EIS is a campaigning organisation that takes a lead on the big issues for education and teachers. The EIS runs major campaigns to protect education, deliver better opportunities for learners, and defend the pay and conditions of teachers.
The EIS offers all members access to a specialist discount scheme covering a large number of retail outlets in Scotland and the rest of the UK.
