In 2014 the joint trade union group in Wales negotiated with ColegauCymru a new national contract for all staff employed in further education colleges in Wales which members voted to accept.

Colleges will start to implement the National Contract For All Staff In Wales from next academic year (2014-15). The implementation agreement articulates in writing the requirements in relation to staff working in colleges:

Below are the agreements in relation to threshold progression and part-time agreement

Each college has an agreement on Performance Management and Review (PMAR) which outlines the application process to achieve threshold progression, a copy of that agreement can be obtained from your branch officers. UCU and the employers' body produced national guidance on the operation of PMAR, which should be reflected in those agreements.

UCU would like all colleges to adopt the above model for the operation of PMAR.
