Free Training for members - More dates for your diary!

In addition to the above local association meetings, we have also planned a Training Programme for the new academic year. We were delighted to sponsor three Stockport members to train as anti-racism ambassadors with Show Racism the Red Card, during the summer term. These members will share some of their learning more widely in two sessions this autumn.

Monday 27th September 5pm via zoom – Show racism the red card (Session 1)

(Please email secretary.stockport@nasuwt.org.uk for details of how to join the session)

Recognising and responding to racism. They will talk through key concepts in racial literacy including unconscious bias, privilege and intersectionality before looking at some key ways racism presents itself in schools and how we, as teachers and NASUWT members, can respond to racism.

Show racism the red card (Session 2) - date rearranged
Tuesday 2nd November 5.30-6.30pm via zoom

You do not need to have attended session 1 to attend session 2, which again will be excellent, informative and thought provoking.

(Please email Secretary.stockport@nasuwt.org.uk for details of how to join the session)

An exploration into how racism impacts in our schools and some practical things we can do as teachers to be more consciously anti-racist.

If your school has different salary scales to these, you should email the Member Support Advice Team for specific advice, sending your school or academy trust’s pay policy where possible.

Performance Management

The overwhelming majority of teachers now have their performance reviewed on an annual basis.

The NASUWT has produced a range of guidance to assist you in taking control of your performance management so that you are able to secure a successful outcome, enhance your career progression and maximise your opportunity for pay progression.

You should not participate in any appraisal/performance management process which does not conform to all elements of the NASUWT appraisal/performance management checklist and the classroom observation protocol.
