What is the future for young academics?

Conference & Campaign launch

Saturday, 26 May 2012

Venue: SOAS, London                         Time: 2pm

Facebook page.

Graduate teachers face unique pressures from Universities:
Experience of teaching is invaluable for career progression, whilst institutions face a crisis in funding due to the coalition governments attack on education. This means that many institutions are increasingly relying on graduate teachers for the bulk of undergraduate class teaching, and feel able to offer terms and conditions that are unacceptable.

This conference aims to bring together graduate teachers from across the country to share experience, launch a network that can work with the UCU and NUS, and plan a campaign that can win.
