The National Education Union is run by its members for its members. Get involved in your union and you can help determine policy, play a key role in campaigning, attend events and conferences, and support your colleagues with issues at work. 

Our effective campaigning has made education funding a decisive political issue and made the DfE clarify their workload guidance. 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.

We offer training and professional development opportunities to suit any role or career stage, with subjects ranging from behaviour management and pupil mental health, to SEND and classroom skills. A fantastic range of national and local CPD courses for all our members from managing behaviour to gender identity training and guidance as well as specialist training for reps and officers.

Advice and guidance
Whether you need guidance about your employment rights or help with problems such as workload, bullying or accidents at work, with the National Education Union's unrivalled network of workplace reps, local associations and branches, regional and national offices, as well as an expert legal team, helplines and online support, you can always find the help you need.

Equality is a key priority of the union, to ensure that its members have a voice in the union, in the classroom and in broader society, and do not face barriers to promotion, representation or participation. We believe that all children and young people should have equal access to a good school and an education system which treats staff and those they teach fairly.
