Network of Establishing Teachers


PPTA's Network of Establishing Teachers (previously known as the YANT Network) is for teachers in their first ten years who are establishing themselves in the profession.  The network operates mainly by email and has the following goals:

-    To provide a support network for teachers in their first ten years at both a national and a regional level
-    To nurture activism among PPTA members
-    To support recruitment and retention initiatives

The national Establishing Teachers' Committee is elected at the Issues and Organising Seminar held at the beginning of each year from the regional representatives of the network who attend.
