At The Wrightington Hotel & Country Club, Wigan
The weekend will run with bed, breakfast and evening meal from 6pm on Friday (with dinner provided), until 10am Sunday morning. Accommodation will be in twin-bedded rooms, with all facilities.
Leisure facilities included are: 18 metre swimming pool, relaxing steam room and spa pool, group exercise studio, Myride+ virtual indoor cycling (new), Gymnasium with Free weights, Functional Training, Cardio Vascular and Resistance Training Equipment .
During the weekend there will be several opportunities for you to meet informally with officers of the NUT, local teachers and head-teachers. You might wish to discuss: Induction for new teachers, Union services and benefits. We may look at case studies on typical problems faced by young and inexperienced teachers, current important issues in education, Equalities Issues and much more. There will also be occasions to raise issues of direct concern to yourself.
If you are accepted, you will be able to attend FREE OF CHARGE.
The union will ask you for a £25 FULLY refundable deposit – unfortunately, people have pulled out at the last minute in the past leaving us with quite a lot of expense and no chance to fill their place. You can pay the deposit by cheque or by BACS transfer which will be returned to you after your attendance.
Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis with priority being given to those who have not attended previous Young Teacher Weekends.
