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 March 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.
The overwhelming majority of lessons will take place as normal. A small number of students 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 the end of Monday 27 February with the details of alternative arrangements.
