Whether in a school, college or elsewhere in the education service, the role of the workplace representative (rep) is a vital one for the National Education Union. Our reps help us build the union and support our members.

Whatever the scope of your role - from ensuring posters, advice and guidance are displayed on the staff noticeboard, to liaising directly with the head teacher or principal, to representing your work colleagues - we could not function without you.
