Recommendations for EFL Teachers

The Union of Professional Educators – Voice of the Workers in view of recent events is deeply concerned about the health and well-being of its members in the ELT sector.

As a preventative measure, to prevent the unnecessary spread of COVID-19, the Union is strongly recommending that its members, in all EFL schools, make use of face masks and/or face shields and that they in turn emphasise upon the recommendation for their students to wear masks in class as well as in the common areas indoors. 

Should any employer attempt to prohibit any of the members of the UPE from adopting these precautionary measures, the union is inviting its members to contact the union without delay, and action will be taken.

Furthermore, the union is encouraging both the ELT Council and FELTOM, to acknowledge and approve the guidelines.
