    There are disappointments with a new policy letter impacting Guernsey teachers, but also many to be supportive of, says the acting general secretary of NASUWT, theteacher’s union.

    Chris Keates has commented on the publication of the Committee for Education, Sport and Culture’s policy letter on Transforming Education.

    She said the undertaking that the process will not result in compulsory redundancies is “particularly welcome” and also that consultation will continue.

    However, Ms Keates said the NASUWT is disappointed with the “lack of details in key areas” including around staffing models and structures of the colleges.

    The union is also disappointed the policy letter was released with only two weeks left of the school term as the school holidays "impact severely" on its ability to "meaningfully consult with members".
