Motion text

That this House recognises that teachers are central to the successful delivery of high quality higher education; notes with concern that over 100,000 university teachers do not have permanent contracts and many are employed on zero hours or other exploitative arrangements; believes that this employment model is bad for students and impacts upon quality; and calls on the Government to undertake an inquiry into casualised employment practices in UK universities with a view to safeguarding quality for students and promoting secure and attractive careers for academic staff.
