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.

Join us in campaigning for education

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.

Unprecedented numbers of members  joined the NEU as the result of our successful pay campaign and we know from our new member survey that the majority have joined because they want to make their voices heard. The NEU is run by its members for its members and there are lots of ways you can get involved.

Pay campaign

The NEU is actively campaigning for a fully funded, above-inflation pay rise for all educators, and pay restoration to compensate for years of below-inflation increases.

Abolish Ofsted

Whilst the NEU continues to campaign on a national level for a new system which is supportive, effective and fair, it is vital that our members are protected from the harmful impact of Ofsted on the ground.

Children assessment


We need reform of our assessment and exams systems to make them fit for the future.
