Shrewsbury Colleges Group has responded today to the notification of national strike action by teachers who are members of the National Education Union.
Shrewsbury Colleges Group has responded to the notification of national strike action by teachers who are members of the National Education Union. Strike action will take place on Wednesday 1 February 2023 in all schools and sixth form colleges nationally.
The strike action is in response to the continuing dispute over the demand for a pay award of 11.7% for teachers. The college will take action to minimise the impact of the strike on student learning.
All students should attend college as normal unless informed otherwise. Sports fixtures and college trips will be unaffected by the strike action. All lessons will be registered.
Unfortunately, there will be a small number of students who will be affected by strike action. These students will be informed directly by the appropriate Curriculum Director of the alternative arrangements for their lesson(s). These students will be contacted by Monday 30 January with the details of alternative arrangements.
The college would also like to advise students that there are planned train strikes on Wednesday 1 February which may affect students travelling to and from college. Students who typically use the train for travel should contact Student Services for alternative arrangements.
