Young Teachers

Lancashire NUT invite you to their next annual FREE Young Teacher weekend conference.

At The Wrightington Hotel & Country Club, Wigan


2nd – 4th March 2018

Apply here for a place on the weekend!

 All recently qualified NUT members and early career teachers under the age of 36 teaching in Lancashire, Blackburn with Darwen, Blackpool or the Isle of Man are invited to apply for a place. The aim of the weekend is to give early career teachers a chance to relax, meet with like-minded colleagues and find out a little more information about important current developments in education.  There will also be a chance to see how the Union can help you in developing your career. The weekend will be very informal and the aim is for people to enjoy the company of other young teachers from around the North West and to benefit from the comfort and facilities of the venue hosting the conference.

The weekend will run with bed, breakfast and evening meal from 6pm on Friday (with dinner provided), until 10am Sunday morning.  Accommodation will be in twin-bedded rooms, with all facilities.

Leisure facilities included are: 18 metre swimming pool, relaxing steam room and spa pool, group exercise studio, Myride+ virtual indoor cycling (new), Gymnasium with Free weights, Functional Training, Cardio Vascular and Resistance Training Equipment .




During the weekend there will be several opportunities for you to meet informally with officers of the NUT,  local teachers and head-teachers.  You might wish to discuss: Induction for new teachers, Union services and benefits. We may look at case studies on typical problems faced by young and inexperienced teachers, current important issues in education, Equalities Issues and much more.  There will also be occasions to raise issues of direct concern to yourself.


For further information about the weekend contact Ashley Care (Administrative Officer) by e-mail:

If you are accepted, you will be able to attend FREE OF CHARGE.

The union will ask you for a £25 FULLY refundable deposit – unfortunately, people have pulled out at the last minute in the past leaving us with quite a lot of expense and no chance to fill their place. You can pay the deposit by cheque or by BACS transfer which will be returned to you after your attendance.

Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis with priority being given to those who have not attended previous Young Teacher Weekends.
