The NEU is working to help ensure the health and safety of our members, their families and our schools as we continue to face the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. There are many resources and FAQs relating to coronavirus available on the main NEU webpage.

Supply Members Conference
The next National Education Union (NEU) conference for supply members will be held via Zoom on Saturday, 26 June, 9.30am-4.30pm.
The conference will be an opportunity to hear keynote speakers and join workshop sessions aimed at producing local action plans to tackle supply issues identified by members.
The main focus will be delivering on the supply motions carried at the NEU conference in April, and the instructions contained within them, in particular:
- The Alternatives to Agencies (A2A) toolkit and how we make it work;
- Making agencies compliant with the law;
- How we bargain with agencies for better pay rates;
- How we engage effectively and network with supply members locally.
There will also be updates on supply training and continuing professional development (CPD) events in what will be an opportunity to be a part of the NEU’s collective response to the issues and challenges facing supply members.
