Teachers’ Union changes name
The union that represents teachers and support staff at independent (private) schools has registered a change to its name.
The Independent Schools Teachers Association NZ (ISTANZ) decided to change its name to Independent Schools Education Association (ISEA).
“The new name particularly reflects our membership of staff employed in non-teaching roles at independent schools,” says ISEA executive officer Dr Grant Gillon.
The inclusion of the word ‘education’ in the title reflects the usage of the word by sister organisations overseas, together with NZEI’s usage of the similar word ‘educational’.
ISEA continues to provide a range of membership discounts and benefits to members as well as employment and legal support.
“Our association celebrated its 40th anniversary last year and our membership continues to grow every year,” says Dr Gillon.
