From time to time vacancies arise on NCCA development groups. Participation on NCCA committees does not in any way alter TUI policy regarding issues such as assessment of new courses, but participation does provide a valuable opportunity for practising teachers and the nominating teacher unions to influence developments in curriculum and syllabi. Each teacher union is usually invited to nominate two representatives to each development group. Each representative will be required to make thoughtful insights in the discussions of the relevant development group, within the context of TUI policy. Representatives are required from time to time to discuss strategy, and meet with, relevant officials from TUI Head Office. Representatives may also be asked to act as exams spokespersons for TUI in the subjects relevant to their expertise. This can involve giving considered feedback to the media and Exams Commission, again within the context of TUI policy.
