We are the largest education union representing teachers, lecturers, support staff, and school leaders, in maintained and independent schools and colleges across the UK.

We have a powerful voice and have been effective in winning improvements to our members’ working conditions and shaping an education system that works for all. 

What we do

NEU reps with training certificates


Our reps are the heart of the NEU – the largest education union in Europe. The role of a workplace rep is really rewarding and many of the skills you will develop are transferable to your professional life.

Internationalism sits at the heart of the National Education Union’s values. As an education trade union, we believe that defending human rights, including trade union rights and the right to education, must be a global endeavour.

We are the NEU. Join Us.
