The University and College Union (UCU) has published an update on ‘Institute for Learning (IfL) membership costs’ which confirms they have now suspended their current legal proceedings.

The UCU objected to the requirement that after completion of the appropriate qualification all teachers in the learning and skills sector would be required to register with the IfL.

Members have been encouraged to boycott the registration payment, and the UCU initiated legal proceedings against the IfL.

The update reads “UCU has now suspended the current legal proceedings against IfL but the boycott of fees remains.”
