Euan Duncan, Chorister

Euan was a chorister with the cathedral choir in the early 1980s.  Although music has always been a big part of his life, and has undoubtedly contributed to his opportunities and the choices he has made, it has not featured in his professional career.  Following a degree in Theology from Durham University, Euan worked for a bank for a short spell before turning to teaching.  Since 1994 he has worked in North Ayrshire, first as a teacher of Religious and Moral Education and then as a Principal Teacher of Pastoral Support.  He still plays 'cello and is presently looking for the time and an opportunity to participate in a small choir.

A member of the Scottish Secondary Teachers' Association (SSTA), one of Scotland's principal teaching unions, Euan took up the role of school representative early in his career.   For a number of years he has been a member of SSTA Council and National Executive.  As Convener of the SSTA’s Salaries and Conditions of Service Committee he represented the SSTA at the Scottish Negotiating Committee for Teachers.  In 2015 he was elected as SSTA President, a role which has enabled him to lead association discussions on teachers' professional and contractual matters and to influence national and international educational developments.
