School support staff

Check out our new Education Issues page

UNISON is the largest union in Scotland’s education service and represents a range of staff working in all sectors of education.

UNISON has a great many members in the education sector, supporting the education of our children. They are the key workers in early years’ centres and undertake a range of crucial roles in schools, further education colleges and universities as well as the careers advice service. All have a key role to play in the teaching and learning of children throughout their school lives.

As schools return to work following the closures because of the Covid-19 lockdown, our school support staff have a key role to play, not just in our children’s education, but in ensuring the health and safety of their pupils and colleagues.
