South Gloucestershire District
Welcome to the South Gloucestershire District web pages. Use the contact information on this page to get in touch about casework, local meetings and training, annual conference and other issues. Requests for new support on local employment issues should be made initially via the NEU Employment AdviceLine, rather than contacting officers directly.
The District Secretary normally undertakes union activities on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and for the rest of the week is working as a teacher in a local school. Replies to emails and phone calls may not be made until the Secretary is next doing union duties, so urgent matters should go to the NEU South West Regional Office (see below).
Correspondence can be sent to the District at: Unit 3b, The Old Library, Trinity Road, Bristol. BS2 0NW. However, contact should preferably be via email or telephone rather than post, as officers only visit the office occasionally.
35 or under?
If you are, then see the Bristol and South Glos Young Educator Network Facebook page for exciting events for all local young education professionals, and also for those who have been an education worker for less than five years.
