Colleagues working outside of a school or college

"I'd highly recommend joining. The updates that come through mean that I am as well informed as colleagues working in a school. Plus working in education, particularly when resources are so tight, can be a little uncertain so knowing that I have the legal backing available to help me should something arise makes me feel more secure." Director of Operations at a MAT head office
