The NEU has a proud history of solidarity with the Palestinian people, including sending delegations to visit Palestine. The visit will give delegates a first-hand experience of the daily lives of Palestinians, focusing on education and advocacy. The group will visit schools, meet with colleagues in the General Union of Palestinian Teachers, hear from organisations working on-the-ground across the West Bank, and more.

Delegation fee:

The cost per delegate is £1,995 of which £1,000 will be covered by the Union’s International Solidarity Fund. The remainder will need to be covered by either the delegate themselves, by their district/branch or by a combination of the two determined by decisions taken locally. Nominees are strongly urged to secure funding for the cost of joining the delegation prior to applying.

How to apply:

Nominations can only be made by districts or branches. Applications made by individuals without the approval of their district or branch will not be accepted. Please note nomination forms need to be signed by both the Secretary and Treasurer. Nominees must also submit a statement of 200 words (maximum) and include experience of international solidarity work, knowledge of the situation in Palestine and pledged activities upon return.

The deadline for the receipt of nominations is now closed. If you have any questions please email
