Your NEU is a campaigning union with a clear vision of what our education system should look like.

Together, we want to shape the future of education for the benefit of teachers, support staff, leaders and pupils.

There is a crisis in education. Funding cuts are hitting schools, workload is at a record high and the assessment and accountability system is broken, driving excessive workloads. Add this to years of real terms pay cuts and it is no wonder there is a recruitment and retention crisis.

This is why it is so vital that the NEU works with allies to articulate our alternative vision and to win on the key issues of workload, funding, assessment and pay.
