Whether in a school, college or elsewhere in the education service, the role of the workplace representative is a vital one for the National Education Union. Our representatives work on a voluntary basis to build the Union to ensure that we remain the largest and most effective education union. 

You just need the enthusiasm to help your colleagues and to care about the issues facing the profession. We’ll support you with everything else.
