Future of the profession

https://www.ucu.org.uk/free

As part of UCU’s drive to support education workers at the start of their careers, from 1 October 2017 we are offering free membership to some further and higher staff.

Free membership* applies to staff in the following categories:

  • enrolled postgraduate students contracted to teach in UK higher education institutions
  • staff working in further education not on lecturing contracts but part of the teaching and assessing team such as instructor, assessor, trainer or coach.

If you think you may be eligible for free membership but are not sure, please contact Matt Waddup.
