Renfrewshire Council have advised UNISON that they intend to restart negotiations on the proposals to replace the current ASNA/Classroom Assistant roles with a Pupil Support Model.

This review should address the issues raised by UNISON on medical interventions/administration of medicines, create a career structure, job evaluation of new roles and appropriate training.

I am looking for volunteers from the membership to establish a focus group to work alongside Branch Officers in taking this review forward.

If interested, please contact the branch office with your details. The branch would like to have broad representation across all areas of the current provision.

I will arrange video meetings for members when appropriate to do so – please ensure you have updated your contact email address etc. with us.

Members will be kept up to date with developments.

Please stay safe, fit and healthy.


Mark Ferguson
Branch Secretary
