Reclaiming professionalism: have your say - a seminar for members

20 February 2013

The need for UCU to know what it means when it states that all UCU members are professionals is urgent. Professionalism and especially that of those in the public sector is under devastating attack.

UCU policy department has produced a document trying to define a UCU concept of professionalism. 

This event, held in March 2013, drew together the various comments that members had made on the paper to date and continued the discussion on professionalism with the aim of producing a publication to go to UCU Congress in May 2013.  

All related documents are available at:

We have secured a presentation from Professor Stephen Ball, one of the leading academics on marketisation and privatisation.
