Educational Institute of Scotland (EIS) will take part in the industrial action this week with another 24 hour strike planned for Wednesday the 3rd of May. Students are getting concerned that the next batch of strikes could take place when Critical exams are ready to take place. Strikes also affect students study and learning and can have major impacts at exam times.

The strikes are taking place by lecturers over disputes with pay.

There are a number of strike days planned over the next few weeks. We will review the situation for further strike days and update you on arrangements for these dates as soon as we can. Please look out for updates on the college website, Facebook and Twitter accounts, and on the plasma screens on all campuses.

We apologise for any inconvenience and concern this will cause.
