@CollegesScot : There is a clear difference between Instructor/tutor/assessor roles and that of a lecturer, and the remit of these roles may vary based on local and regional need. For example, lecturers would be required to prepare learning materials and assessments, and invigilate examinations, whereas tutor/assessor/instructor are less likely to be required to do so. Tutor/assessor/instructors will have fewer duties and responsibilities.
The EIS-FELA has exhausted all national dispute procedures/mechanisms on this matter with no resolution reached. The trade unions were advised that any matters outstanding were at local college level and should be discussed further with the small number of colleges concerned.
The Scottish Funding Council (@ScotFundCouncil) has today (Tuesday 20 October) published the findings of Phase 1 of its review of colleges and universities. The Phase 1 Report recognises the vital role of Scotland’s colleges and universities in transforming lives, supplying a pipeline of talent, supporting economic and social renewal, and forging global networks but it also points to the need for change and for a mature conversation about their future so that their continued success and sustainability can be secured.
