Our school and college representatives are our key local leaders. They are the first point of contact for members and can be involved in recruitment, representing members
and mobilising members to make a difference.
However, we don’t expect our representatives to do this alone.
We have developed a comprehensive support and development programme which enables reps to progressively build their skills and confidence in Union work. Each rep will be
able to follow a training programme delivered in their Region or Wales close to where they live or work.
Reps have a legal entitlement to this training and support will be given where any rep finds difficulty negotiating their time off from work. Courses are free to attend
and travel expenses will be reimbursed. Please discuss any other barriers to your participation with your regional
