Campaigns

Together we will build an education system of which we can all be proud.

Our funding campaign has put school cuts firmly on the political agenda, and our workload campaign has helped members up and down the country take control of their working lives.

We will continue to fight for a fairly-funded education system, with highly trained and qualified teachers and educational professionals who have manageable workloads, fair pay and good working conditions.

Funding

The cuts being implemented by the Government put education at risk. Increased funding is desperately needed to safeguard our children’s education. On Tuesday 24 October we held a rally and mass lobby of Parliament. Now they're over, what comes next?

Workload

Excessive workload is one of the most serious issues facing the education profession. Teachers in England work an average of 54 hours a week, while school leaders work in excess of 60, according the DfE’s own workload survey. We aim to help education professionals tackle their workload as well as seeking changes to unnecessary practices that pile on the hours.

School cuts

Following the recent announcement on school funding by Justine Greening, the picture remains bleak. 88% of schools are still facing real-terms budget cuts per pupil between 2015/16 and 2019/20. For the average primary school this will be a loss of £52,546 per year. For the average secondary school this will be a loss of £178,321 per year. Visit the School Cuts website to see how schools in your area will be affected.
