This new members' only event will take place in the afternoon following on from Getting the most from UCEA membership.

It will run for no more than two hours, starting at 1.45pm and the latest finish time will be 3.45 pm. The session - led by Helen Fairfoul, Chief Executive and Nicola Carter, Head of HR Advice - will cover:

  • The 1990 ‘national contract’ for academic staff (and HE2000 in Scotland)
  • Statutes and the model statute documents
  • The Framework Agreement and its implementation in institutions
  • The New JNCHES role

The purpose of the session is to explain and we hope de-mystify the origins and content of the various legacy documents and arrangements and their status and use in institutional settings.

It will aim to help people understand what is possible and negotiable, and share the information and intelligence that UCEA has gathered for members. It will touch on some national union perspectives and explain the residual role of New JNCHES.

This session is open to all members but may be particularly useful to those who are newer to the sector. 

We realise that not all the people who may find the session useful will be able to attend. We therefore plan to make the core UCEA content available in the near future as a members’ resource on our website.
