Get Involved

Young Teachers are the lifeblood of the future of the union – which is why we have one of the most successful FREE ‘Young Teacher Weekends’ each year in March – organised by our own local young teachers. Look at for the new Summer and Autumn events!

Perhaps not the best way, but many members first get involved in union work when they themselves seek support over an issue. FAQs try to answer some of the more common queries concerning NQTs, academies, giving notice, etc


Perhaps you need some information about the issues so that you can be more confident of the ‘facts’?

Try this new resource:


As never before, education policy is being driven by ideology not evidence.  Every Government announcement is laden with myths about schools, teachers and our education system.

It’s time to get the facts.

EduFacts aims to challenge Government and media rhetoric by presenting the facts about what’s going on in our schools, our education system and in the teaching profession.

Each EduFacts factsheet presents a series of short factual statements about a topical education issue with the supporting evidence to back them up.

From teachers’ pay to school holidays, from academies to school funding, EduFacts will bring you the facts, not the myths about what’s going on in education.
