SNA contract issues
The National Council for Special Education, following on from its 2015 Supporting Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder in Schools policy advice to the Department of Education and Skills, has been asked to gather data towards developing new guidelines in this area.
They have now issued a public questionnaire on the subject and are seeking submissions. It's a short questionnaire, there are eight questions in total.
We would encourage all SNAs to take part in the questionnaire. This ensures that SNA views are central to any guidelines that are developed from this process.
The links to the questionnaire can be found here in Irish and English language versions (click on highlighted text).
Please complete the questionnaire and share with your SNA friends and colleagues.
Since April 2018 we've been publishing a special segment focussing on contract issues facing SNAs. Devised and written by assistant general secretary Seán Carabini, it has proved to be one of the most popular items in the Education news bulletin.
We've archived all of these items for ease of access, and will publish an updated archive in each future edition of the bulletin.
If you have SNA contract issues you'd like to see covered in the bulletin, please contact us here and include 'SNA contract issues for the news bulletin' in the subject heading.
