Workplace reps - independent sector
Workplace reps in the independent sector have four main tasks, which are to:
provide information to other members in the school/college and to raise the profile of ATL by updating the staffroom noticeboard with posters and newsletters
recruit new members into ATL membership by introducing yourself to new members of staff and asking them to join
act as a communication link on key issues in education between ATL and other members in the school/college
signpost members in the school/college to sources of information and advice within ATL.
The workplace reps' course will allow you to:

know how to access the support mechanisms available to you

develop your communication and negotiating skills.
This course is free to ATL workplace reps.
