ASTI School Stewards' Training

ASTI school steward training days provide practical support for the school-steward team in schools. Topics addressed include:

  • the role of the school steward
  • complaints against teachers and disciplinary procedures
  • contracts
  • leave for teachers

  • School pays the substitution costs from school’s funds
  • School invoices the ASTI using the template form provided to the school steward at the training
  • ASTI reimburses the school
