EIS-FELA ballot and Instructor Roles in Colleges

@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.
